The sky looked angry when we woke up, but then cleared slightly. What was apparent even from the ground was the strong easterly wind. We went up the hill anyway, but cloud base had sunk to launch height and the east wind was way too strong. Signe was the only one to put her hand up when we were asked if we wanted to fly, so she was the task winner for today.

Instead of flying we had a pilot’s meeting to discuss any improvements we could make in future and how we might attract more women to come to a future Women’s Open. The next WPO will probably be in Brazil in March. We hope so anyway!

The prize giving and party were streamed live over the internet and if you missed the fun, you can see what we got up to here.
