Exercise 12&13 – Circuits

Intro

This was my second lesson of circuits and my brother came along for the ride. There was some really strong cross winds directly at 90° to the runway which made it quite challenging. Bizarrely my first circuit seemed to be my best! I’m looking forward to a lesson of circuits with less cross wind so that I can start to hone my skills in less challenging conditions first.
