  Great few days on the Ladder. However - I can t help but feel the advantage of self launching and motoring to remote start 100 s of K s away From the club at FL snot is simply not the same sport as the one I m doing. Not to mention then ending in a different hemisphere and motoring home for tea.

Some of us without Elon musk back in - are forced to fly sailplanes and start from an aerotow at 9 am at 3k into 20 knots of headwind..

When are we going to split all this nonsense out so real glider pilots can be measured?
