Comments:Spent a hour or so making the most of lumpy thermals on the face of Moel Morfydd then finally found one which took me just above the inversion at a litle above 3200ft. Had plenty of time on my hands so ran downwind, over Llysfasi College, to land just accross the A525 road from Llanbenwch Farm. No other thermal lift en route. Distance of about 8km. A friendly welcome from the farmer but no tea offered! Got back via service bus to top of Nant y Garth; to A5104 by a granny collecting kids from school; here I met up with Paul Burke who had landed nearby. Last leg of the retrieve was by Jack Evans who picked us both up from the A5104 on hios way back from picking up Roger Pierce who had flown to Accre. Thanks everyone!
