|Lots of shade at Harrogate!|
In any event the forecast was wrong with respect to the wind direction. Supposed to be WSW but it turned out to be more NW and the further south you went, the more north it got (usually it's the exact opposite!).
We did have a couple of incidents. One pilot went into the trees just off launch but was retrieved OK, and another pilot had his reserve fall out as he was kiting his glider to the packing up area in the Nicholson LZ (he was already on the ground so it just inflated behind him like a giant drogue chute).
|Final glide just before 9 pm.|
