Wednesday 18th to Thursday 19th October, 2023

Wednesday 18th.  A moderate E'ly blew all day, accompanied by low cloud as Storm Babet slowly approached from the south, an afternoon clearance coming too late for any flying.

Thursday 19th.  Storm Babet crossed the site during the night, depositing 13 mm of rain, with the E'ly wind increasing to fresh,  but then declining to moderate and veering into the SE.  The obstacle to flying was low cloud and occasional rain, so the hangar doors remained closed.

This blog describes a snippet of life at the Yorkshire Gliding Club. Why not take a flight and try it yourself, or we can teach you to fly as a full club member.
