The day didn’t develop as expected and stayed around the 5-6,000′, but the Cu cloud helped.
A “replacement airmass” arrived from the south about 4:30pm and killed the Cu making the way home challenging. Paul Rose didn’t get that last thermal and outlanded 33kms to the north west. The paddock was soft but BMF’s 260hp engine made short work of pulling the Discus out and returning it safely to SX.
The day finished with another convivial meal at Stan’s Palace Hotel.
