In the end, there was no flying to be had today, as the airfield was fog-bound, at least until 1pm, when the CFI "declared". But the morning wasn't wasted: I spent some time helping de-rig a glider (and amired the cleverness of the de-rig kit and trailer), shot the breeze with a lot a interesting folk, including a chap who used to be on submarines (including one dating from WW2!). And Paul very kindly walked me round the hangar, talking about types of glider I might like to own one day, including a K6 (the likes of which can be had for two grand, trailer included!), and found me a parachute so that I could try out a cockpit.
