16 Thousand feet thermals 44 Degrees 02/01/15

The day was not as predictable as conventional analysis would suggest. Many of the forecast models showd different and contradictory data. In the end Q did form in the northern parts of Victoria. The day was slow to get going but Craig V and Peter Temple still managed 1000 klm flights. Assisted by a 20 knot tail wind as convection was only going to approx 3000 ft. Peters flight should enable a claim of 4 records. This is the 4th one thousand plus flight out of Waikerie in the last 2 weeks.

Peter Paine achieved a good flight of 660 klm my flight was also resonable at 582 klm. We headed across the border to Hattah Carwarp and back towards Clare.

Good flight in the LS4 yesterday 582 kilometres at 108kph
