I flew yesterday for the first time in several weeks. It was quite windy. The problem with my club site is that the wind is not up/down the strip, so cross wind take off and landing are the norm. Also at one end of the strip is a wooded area which generates some superb turbulence when on the final leg of the landing approach.
So, at what point (wind strength) does practice become pointless? As I said at the top of this posting, I have not flown for weeks and was starting to get desperate for a flight.

I actually managed to get out this weekend and have 9 flights in total - makes 12 for the calendar year to date.  It was windy both days but quite smooth and I enjoyed it.  When the EC or WC are on it always makes me want to fly.
