Showery airflow from the South East today with occasional glimpses of the sun through deep layers of cloud.

Full vented 1.5 with green race again for me and unusually I was first on site so time for some 'solo' flying.  

The first shower passed before other fliers arrived. We then flew freeform only daring to look back when shadows were occasionally visible on the ground.  A pattern of moves is beginning to emerge and critically the use of the wind window comes to the fore.  We are not trying to 'force' figures just taking full advantage of the available window.  Moving very close together at all points in the window and then moving apart  to line up for the next interaction.  Variation of speed and the confidence of control in close proximity reminds me of flying with the Roks.

Today we had one instance of bound wet lines which unfolded elegantly once the lines were 'relaxed'.

Five weeks now until the start of 'main events' for 2013. <grins>
