First day blues

So camp set up. spent Friday morning catching up with old friends from USA/Japan/holland Denmark to name a few. The gliders had made the trip okay and I spent a quite couple hours on my own getting them set up.
 These gliders are British made. By Richard And Haley at and are called a sabotage. There flying weight is 265 grams. You are only allowed 5 gliders for the competition. They all have there dimensions checked by an FAI official and then carry a stamp on them to say that they are legal but can not be changed. If it get windy it is possible to add up to 100 grms weight inside the glider to help it penetrate into wind.
