first day of spring

This weekend heralded the start of spring, the sun and warmth confirm the shift in seasons. With a high pressure system establishing itself over the UK, it's a flat field day on Saturday with lots of passing buzzards marking the thermals.

Sunday brings fortune to the brave, with F3Fs and floaters doing well off the slope on a slermally afternoon. If you work the spring lift well it's a rewarding session, but there are a few out landings as the sink sweeps through behind.
