I've been seriously considering going back to gliding as interest in power flying has dropped hugely for me in the last few years.
The challenge that flying ( and staying flying ) with no engine poses was for me one of the biggest 'highs' from flying , the difference in launch options dramatic ( head snapping winch acceleration , or formation on the tug , or even a bungy launch with a huge rubber band! )
it is an immersive way of flying - truly only possible with others input ( mostly voluntary I'd add), for a full day or weekend at a time in what I still feel are some of the most graceful & efficient machines ever made .
In gliding you have to get it right , no go around , second approaches etc. ( unless you've got a small motor) .
I'm selling it back to myself more & more ….!
