Comments:Winds were light (and variable), I had just decided to pack up when it picked up. I launched into some good lift, which I lost, but could see Matt in front of the usual take off in good lift. I managed to get into the same thermal. We picked up a really good second thermal just by the rifle range, a farmer was turning hay! I was enjoying the sustained lift when Matt flew close enough to shout 'watch out for airspace' big ears follwed to stay below 4500ft. Decided to head over Coedpoeth and south of Wrecsam. Found a small area of lift over Rhostyllen, but soon landed out nr Marchwiel. Went to my friends house and enjoyed a beer.
