Comments:Took off and climbed up to cloudbase. Drifted downwind under a cloud till the lift stopped, then found some more lift a couple of kms downwind, but it soon fizzled out, went searching downwind for more lift but found none. Landed at the Old Racecourse near Rhydycroesau (SJ257304). Thanks for all the advice/encouragement/retrieval, it made for a very enjoyable XC flight.
