    Crosswind? I reckon that's a very angry wind!
    Just shows, no matter how far 'advanced' aviation becomes, nature still has the last laugh !

    It may sound odd but I really enjoyed them. The challenge of getting the glider set up and coming with such an allowance for the crosswind was almost unreal. The main problem was ensuring that you didn't get far downwind of the landing strip as you wouldn't be able to make it back and end up landing in a field

    I don't mind a crosswind setup...unless I'm in the back seat, then it's not fun. At all.
