Comments:Had been flying for a while with Richard Fry in punchy thermals when a longer-lasting thermal launched off Accre by Wendy. I hope those pilots walking up had good flights. Glad to have height over the noisy firing range on Llandegla Moors; it would look odd on an Incident Report. Ever hopeful of one last thermal to get me over Hope Mt. but groundsuck took over. No chance of a lift on back lanes and no-one giving lifts on the main road at Rhydtalog. So left the glider at a house and continued walking the remaining 7km back to Accre; in sunshine at first then under thickening clouds and finally heavy rain. It couldn't dampen my spirits however.
