Seems just like yesterday that over a dozen of us were at the exclusive to WMAC, Gourds Farm slope for a Club Slope Soaring Day. But in fact it was 2010! Planning ahead for a sunny day in Summer with favourable winds would appear doomed. But the Weather Gods looked down on us and granted our wish for a great fun day. Included was lots of laughter and skillful combat flying.
A Grand Day Out. No sheep, penguins, rabbits, cheese or animations Gromit!
The following years the Slope Day Out was planned again but never came to fruition due to poor weather, good ol' English Summers!
However, smaller "on the fly" trips out to this slope have been achieved and again great fun was had by all. Followed by a "debrief" over a beer at Compton Abbas Aerodrome Cafe.
This video was created before the cameraman had access to 16:9 camcorder and small cams that would stick on to wings.
