Performance in the EN B class is “pretty exciting” at the moment according to Pat Dower, who took U-Turn’s Blacklight (EN B) to the Alps this year. He took the glider on a several jaunts across the mountains, including one to Mont Blanc, and came away impressed.
From evening soaring in smooth conditions to climbing out above launch with a gaggle of Sports class gliders and the odd R10 he felt instantly at ease, and at home.
