Congratulations to Tony McDermott who completed his 5 hour Silver Duration. Excellent achievement. Tony made an attempt at the 5 hour duration while at the Ulster Gliding Club a while back but was unfortunate to run out of lift with only 10 minutes to go. Obviously the experience stood to Tony as he earned his Silver Duration at Dublin Gliding Club on Saturday 11th May. Well Done!!
Looking back on 2023, as usual one of the highlights was the autumn safari to Kerry. Storm Agnes knocked out some of the flying days, but we still managed to get flying. Here’s a picture of the K18 standing by to be launched into the air by a car tow. But what’s that “ground equipment” next
