Friday was another day with wave forecast, Craig experienced wave for the first time soaring above the clouds to over 5000ft (if only he had a logger it would have been silver height), All CG pilots sampled the wave to varying heights with myself getting to 10000ft which was the highest of the day (it did take three and a half hours to get there).
