High cumulus days!

 Farewell to Joachim (above) who has enjoyed a fortnight of soaring in IIE. See you next season!

 We enjoyed a lovely dinner with Joachim (above) on his last evening in Tocumwal at the "Palms" hotel.

 Michael (above) has continued his gliding instruction in UIZ.

For the last 10 days or so we have had a trough in the area that has given us high cumulus days and light winds suitable for big tasks.

 Bjorn (above) enjoying another day in paradise!

Clint had a great first flight with Eddie in the EuroFox.
