Comments:With a increasing wind forecast for the day, I got to Llangollen T-off early, took off & found a climb straight away. Got to cloud base which was about 4400ft. Went on a glide & found the 2nd climb, then a weak 3rd climb, then went on a glide again. I was now over a Caravan Park near Llanymynech area & I was down to 900ft above the ground & starting to think it was game over, but found another climb & it was straight back up to cloud base. Welshpool airspace was only a couple of km's downwind now & I eventually had to turn 90 degree's to avoid flying into it.
