Flew Elwood yesterday in overcast fog. The marine layer is hanging pretty tough, but should be nice for the light stuff. Elwood mesa is super green compared to years past.

Stopped by the Ruins too, later in the afternoon, but it was super hot, and a thermal low from the inland heat was pulling lift from the cooler coast side, back-winding the slope, so I'm thinking it won't be the go to for afternoon stuff this year, but who knows?

Looking forward to seeing y'all!

See you guys at Ellwood.

Already here Jay man. And of course with Hawk ready to go.

First thing I flew was my Labelle.

Lite conditions but definitely flyable. Jay and I were just flying our Hobie Hawks for about an hour straight.

Very relaxing and fun.

Pretty good turnout today considering it’s not really the Weasel Fest until tomorrow.

Besides all the people in this picture there were 4 other guys that are not in it.

Unfortunately we did have a Hobie Hawk go for a swim today.
It was a maiden flight for Joe’s new Hawk.
We think the CG was off. Tail heavy. There wasn’t really anything Joe could do.

Good news is. It is repairable. It will fly again.

Forecast for today looks similar to yesterday... SE in the morning and switching to SW by midday.

Although it stayed overcast all day yesterday, the lift was pretty good and perfect for Dream-Flight planes. I'm going to try to get out there by around noon today.

Looking forward to it!

According to the airport, it's blowing 6kts at 230* right now... which should be flyable!

https://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KSBA/weather

^ Anything between 200-250* and > 5kts should result in flyable conditions at Ellwood.
