|Weasel-Evo skims along just below the cloud.|
Being an ever-hopeful optimist I was back up the hill first thing on Sunday morning and it was excellent. Blowing 30mph + and building from the SSW (15 degrees west of south according to my Silva compass). Some high cloud but bright sunshine trying to break through and really smooth and lifty air! Great fun and my Pike Precision was going well. Really well!
A few light showers blew through and I cowered in the lee of the main slope until it cleared and the Pike was back in the air with lots of ballast. Yippee!!
I flew from just
beyond the gate well to the east end of the usual main slope and it must be the best direction for East Lomond. I headed home about 12 and the wind was still building.
