Comments:Good lift on Moel Morfyd got me to about 2000ft above the hill and drifted back with it. Soon into steady sink and aimed fo Lysfasi. Some little top ups on the way, and a bit more over Lysfasi itself. Continued to drift north to land - again! - at Llanbenwch Farm, just across the road from where I landed some weeks back!!. Got back via bus to the top of Nant Garth, a lift ftom there to just beyond the model flyers field, then walked the rest having stashed the wing in a field at the foot of the hill. Not such a good day as Stu and Ian, but 'Every little 'elps!' About 45 mins and 8.4km, I reckon.
