Yep, try we did Chris, I thought yourself & fellow Scalies might like a summary of our day.
Arrived at Whitesheet this morning at around 8.30 & measured a steady 30 gusting to 35 mph W - WNW
Andy B & I walked out in advance of everyone, to the very far end of 'Morgans' .
Whilst I set about marking / measuring out the course Andy had a fly to test the conditions. Within 5 minutes of him launching the wind had picked up significantly, this I recorded as 50- gusting to 55 mph .
Credit to Andy, he stuck with it for several more minutes in what would best be described as being a bit of 'challenging air' .
After a few more minutes of being truly battered by the wind, Andy's quick & crisp footwork to keep his balance would have scored him a perfect 10 on 'Strictly'
While taking a further windmeter reading it had now averaged a steady 55 - 60, with a highest measured gust of 68 mph THUD !
By now watching Andy's deft footwork to keep himself upright was like watching Michael Flatley in Riverdance
With the wind still picking up, Andy then brought his model around to score a perfect 10 landing .
The result......….a round of applause to Andy & Comp cancelled .
Wishing yourself & fellow Scalies a 'cracking' first Whitesheet Scale day of 2019 next Sunday.
