Dennis and I got some good flying at Jack's.We launched around 5:00 into 6 to 12 straight in winds... Dennis got up right away launching into a thermal... I took a bit longer but caught up to him eventually...We had nice thermal action going on and I got 1650 over... Car was at lz so we had to leave the thermals... Might have gained a lot more... I had to run off my landing and Dennis rolled in after an hour ten.... Might as well mention Sunday's flying... Allan B, William and I had short (extendoes) at Jack's ...Allan got above for a minute or two....
It was a fun day at Jacks. I launched first into about 8 MPH winds out of the SE. Went right up over the ridge where the ridge lift was consistent. The cloud ceiling was only about 500' over launch with almost 100% cloud cover. So it was mostly just ridge soaring and some light thermals. In all Joe, Karen, Dennis, Sam, Aaron, Dave and myself got to fly. This was my second flight on my U2 145. My flight lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes. Really liking this glider.
