Comment

It's embarrassing, but this flight is my Silver-C flight. I've been flying sailplanes since I was 17, but never did the silver-C due to the problems of observers, barographs, etc.

Today was an almost-entirely "blue" day -- and the first flight for me this year. I flew it very conservatively because while a 50 km leg in a Discus is pretty easy, I wanted to get it all done and not land out. I also stretched the length of the flight just to find out my own capacity/comfort for long flights, and to get some more experience flying late into the day in the Hudson valley. That will matter if I try Gold or (gasp) Diamond flights ... the latter is particularly difficult from 5B2 ... in the northeast ... but it has been done.
