In addition to the two early-morning motorglider sorties to Pocklington and back (to ferry a tug pilot for the two-seater competition) there were sixteen winch launches into the gusty and wavy conditions, and one self-launch.
Conditions were not suitable for tasking the Northerns competitors, although two of the competitors flew their gliders for 6:11 and 4:32 and obviously enjoyed the scenery, but I have no details about where they visited.
Club operations saw all four two-seaters in use, accompanied by two of the single seaters, the Discus and the Astir.
The day ended with the Northerns Dinner and Party.
