Forecast is saying good things, Colin and his mate, Paul, Duke and Eric can't resist the allure of the slope and head up to Thurnham to enjoy the sun and the lift.
Conditions are very light, but by about five pm, there is a constant, light wind and the air is glassy smooth. The lift isn't epic, but it's constant now and there is gentle thermal activity. If you've got a floater and a keen thumb, you're in heaven!
Amazingly only one paraglider puts in an appearance, and he has a superb flight, works a thermal downwind and lands next to the showground. Looks like Friday could be much the same!!
