Another good achievement today – Damien Molloy stayed up for 5 hours 14 minutes, gaining a Silver duration. Many congratulations to him! It was not easy, with a slow start with weak thermals disintegrating every 7-10 minutes, slightly stronger later, followed by a fallow period as the top cloud cover came in earlier than forecast. Then a late burst of wave helped for the last hour or two, with strongish thermals near the end. He had a number of low saves, but struggled up again each time – a fantastic flight…
