Comments:Joined the gaggle that were heading off largely because it was not pleasant on the hill. Was too low really, but with the king of the low XC (Keith), managed to hold on until Llandegla fishing lake, when a good climb took me up to airspace levels. Keith missed this, but carried on regardless ...Disappointing glide with nothing more to speak of, but some zeros that I should have stuck with in retrospect.Too low at the edge of Wrexham to even try to stick with the weak lift I found at around 200 feet, so opted for a nice easy landing field instead.
