Found tangled lines at takeoff so missed the first wave of XCs who all got to about 4500'. Then it'd all gone blue at Clough so just bimbled about (plenty of light lift) till I saw a white wing scratching down the ridge - Brian Doub. Decided to give it a go too but never got above 3200'… Ridge lift pretty much all the way.
Had a really rough last few hundred feet coming in to land at Ambleside (wind from North). Then retrieved by Ed and drinks in Hawkshead Brewery Stavely: )
