Saturday stronger SE winds, so we opted for ground handling and was this very fruitful. Everyone who attended learnt, that less is more. In strong winds little amount of input is very effective.

With light thermic cycles coming up making takeoff easy, some doing forward while others preferred the reverse launch.
