7:00 am It's been raining .Gliders are de- rigged everywhere.
8:00 am It's still raining.
8:01 am Anyway, So what DID Derren say to Anne? (Just hold the mouse over the words.)
10:30 am At briefing the weatherman said there was a small chance of a small flying window this afternoon. It is expected to improve steadily during the rest of the week. We are re-briefing at 12:00 pm
11:30 am Weatherman has persueded the tasksetter that it's looking better, but it could be a rather short, minimum distance task.
11:45 am Max the task setter says it WILL be a short task. Setting it at this moment. Re-briefing now set for 1:00pm.
13:12 pm The task is set. Bic - Hob - Che - Edg - Bic 155 km. First launch provisionally at 13:30 pm, but dependant on the sniffer reporting acceptable conditions.
14:02 pm Max has just scrubbed the task. Sniffer was reporting 2200' cloudbase and 2kt thermals, making progress into the 25kt wind somewhat tricky.
