This just in from David Carter, our man on the ground (or maybe up in the air!) at Pocklington.
Suitably woken up by the local town crier, the briefing commenced.
First task is a cheeky 180+km in a northerly direction with a 35kt WSW at 4500 feet (like anyone’s getting that high!). Lower winds are not as bad and cu is forming but pretty broken up and the forecast for soaring isn’t great.
Task is POC-SOF-TON-HAN-PCT-POC.
Since I’ve never flown out of Pocklington I have volunteered myself and Richard to be first in the air. We won’t be launching until after 12:00 and we’re in the 5th row of the grid today so maybe not in the air until a while after that.
I will keep you posted!
