What a cracker of a day !   The real soaring season is well under way and Sunday 30/6/19 did not disappoint with no less than 9 OLC files uploaded from Warwick Gliding Club competitors.  With CUs were popping across the sky, gliders jostling for grid position at launch and tense pilots putting their competition game plans into place it was always going to be a classic WWC day.     Heights of over 7000' made for easy WWC Distance kms and it was just pure magic to be in the air.

However Cumulus Carl still has his hand around that Distance trophy's throat but the hot ship Ka6 is a real contender this year piloted by none other than Tony Get Out Of My Way Scarlett tapping him on the back.....tap tap tap.  This is going to get very serious indeed.
