It's so pretty here in mid-Wales...such a pity the weather hasn't cooperated much. Yesterday was cancelled without going up the hill for rain and high wind. Today we all went up to the Long Mynd launch where the wind was howling. Nevertheless, they called a 82km task heading downwind - no other way to go really as it was blowing 20-30 on launch. I rigged and walked up to launch twice to give it a shot, but in the end it was just too much wind for my wimpiness. The flying here is so different than anything I'm used to and I can only recall one time launching (at the beach) in 25mph wind and that was in a rigid wing. I guess it's something I need to get used to if I plan to do much flying in the UK.
We heard that Gary and Grant made goal but were likely the only ones there. Quite a few landed back on top and others like me didn't launch at all.
Tomorrow's forecast looks like rain, rain, rain, so we will likely find something else to do for the day. Keeping the fingers crossed for Monday and Tuesday.
