A few of the chaps are keen have a go at the Chailey Common cross country contest over the weekend, but decide to get a bit of hand tow practice in first.
Simon takes the weight off his feet and perches on the Easy Glider wing,
while the Invisible Man tips his hat and takes a snooze in the boot
found object no.4 (though it's not a bizarre one)
did I mention it was wet?
I mean really wet!
Oh well, with torrential rain, a broken winch and two suspected coronaries, the team feel set to show the competition how it's done!
Sunday dawns damp and windy, but by the time they reach the Common at least the sun's trying to appear.
Eric's pushing at the frontiers of aeronautical knowledge
curl over precludes hand tows, so Eric reverts to a brushed Speed 400 Easy Glider
tricky to keep hold of with a full 2oz of thrust
it doesn't quite have the speed to cut through the low level clag....
Well it's been a long day, but with the South Downs in view they decide to have a quick session at Firle to round things off . Finally they again remember what it's like to have a bit of lift under their wings.
