Conditions are perfect for Sloping today.
I will be there at 11am with Chris D and John W.

Out of curiosity, what are/were the windspeeds?
What is considered ideal for "relaxed" slope-soaring?

Great day at Lawrencetown. At 11am winds from the south at 15 to 20 kph, good for medium weight models. Picked up to 20 to 35 kph by 1pm.
Richard Giles, Chris Dean, John Walker and I had a wonderful time. Intermittent fog halted flying for short periods.
Slope days so far this year have been few and far between, but now with prevailing winds coming from the Southwest things should improve.
