Not a great day but I just wanted to be airborne! Takeoff was in a typical Air Sailing quartering tailwind of about 8 to 10 kts. As the tow plane got about 100 feet or so off the ground he ran through the edge of a dust devil that crossed the runway at a 90° angle. Couldn't see it until just as it crossed the runway in front of us. The tow plane did a sudden steep "zoom" and as I followed it was like being on a winch launch (Yahoo Gene/tow pilot!)! Average lift was about 3.5 to 4 kts and only to about 9K until later in the day. Lots of sink between hard to find and hard to work thermals but I did manage to hit 12.4K at one point. All in all I enjoyed being able to fly since we've been grounded by Covid-19 for the past couple of months. I'm looking forward to flying again tomorrow and Saturday, regardless of how good (or bad) the soaring weather will be, however, it's supposed to get very hot, very quickly starting tomorrow so we'll see. Stay well out there! JLH/H4
