Trøgstad day 2.

Today Øyvind was tow pilot, and although quite a lot of pilots were rumoured to turn up we were only 4 towing today. Jarle got his first tows today, using the clubs Falcon 2 glider. In all he did 6 tows. Werner had two tows on his Axxess, and on his first stayed up for almost an hour, today’s best. I had two tows. The first one was one of the longes I have ever had in time. It was lots of sink, even while towing, and I had a steady 3 m/s sink most of the flight down. During my second tow, we were surprised by a 2 engine plane crusing at our altitude just 100 meter away – I do not think they saw us.
