2011/03/05 Abington (GB) soaring and thermalling

Hi All,
From the very morning the sky was covered with stratus. It didn't look particularly good but I decided to have a try and went with Alan to Abington East. High pressure didn't make me feel optimistic. To fly this site you need a Cloudbusters PG School permission. The wind strength was changing and sometimes it was hard to stay up. A lot of kiting up the hill, a lot of ground handling, learning how to use more effectively the soar ridge. For about 1 hour it was possible to fly thermals. Cloud base was relatively low so it was not long climb. Good day with a lot of practice. I have tried slope landings, but still I am not particularly good at this. If summary about three hours of having fun with glider.
