Right or Left?

Up until recently I never thermalled right. That changed when I started doing comps - on right hand days I felt like a beginner again, I'd get in a right turning gaggle and do 100 turns, and everyone but me would sky out and go on glide, and there I was, low and grovelling all by myself, still turning right.

So for the next 10 flights, I am going to turn only right, unless I am desperately low - I trust my left to get me out of some black holes.

And then the plan to even up the turn direction is going to be let the thermal determine the turn direction - I should have listened to my instructor a long time ago I guess.
