Comments:Took off after the sun had come out to give some lift. Found thermals to be weak, a bit snotty and broken ( I feel like that myself sometimes!). Was expecting to have a coupe of hours just playing around on the hill when I managed to retain a bit of height from one thernal to connect with the next ,with enough ft over the hill to 360. Left expecting to land a few km back, but worked the broken stuff to get to Llanarnom and glided to a cloud over the quarries. This worked nicely to get to 2400ft. The cloud over Mold evapourated during the glide towards it :(Well it is only Feb!Thanks to Mike B for the retrieve and all those who also offered...fine chaps.
