Strong thermal lift at Selsley with poor slope lift, we landed out a few times before making contact with lift
A flight log from Guy's Windstar, we got this model 300 feet higher than my Experienced Pro
There was light slope lift and some smooth but not exciting thermal lift on Lesley today
I only got over 1K once and it was a very slow climb taking over 5 minutes

A strong wind but not a great deal of lift, three of the para gliders got away and a few landed out when the lift faded

Lift was variable Friday afternoon
Guy's Windstar at Selsley, a very nice model to fly, it would make nice trainer
A cold miserable day, I flew at cam Long Down
Light winds and some very strong lift, I specked out my AVA twice, it took ages to dethermal it
