Rybury was sunny with light winds which picked up significantly during the thermal cycles. A good group were in attendance with the likes of Craig, Charles, Nik, Steve, Andrew etc coming out to play.

Having only had 8 minutes on the new OXA 3 I was keen to get in at least an hour of soaring to help me dial in to the joys of this 2 liner. Or so I thought. Clouds were popping and thermals bursting through with sustained gusts gave early hints of the potential of this post cold frontal day.

The take-off characteristics of the OXA were somewhat 'perky' but thereafter I comfortably scratched around low on the ridge for what seemed ages before a solid 2 up lifted me clear and up to base. The glider had originally felt unresponsive, but following a few adjustments to the harness its true nature began to emerge. Once high I pushed back into wind to the hill whilst others climbed out, then joined Charles and Craig, the Zeno Duo, and off we went.

The clouds were working well allowing us to push on at a reasonable pace and enjoy well-spaced climbs. The plan was simple - follow Craig and Charles! Craig led out and we all spread out in thermals and on glides in search of the best lift. All worked well until my phone ran out of juice, so no more FlySkyHy. Time to land.

The first guy I spoke to offered me a lift to the local branch line station, then onto the main station once we got into conversation. No corona virus fears here!

First proper flight on the OXA 3 - Impressions are wow! Thanks Carlo.
