After a disappointing Sunday it felt great heading out for a boat around. Bumpy and lumpy was the message from RASP - The day didn't disappoint on that score!

Only a small crowd on GB, Rob, Andrew, Helen (no wing), Paul, Ian etc. After a few hops Rob, Andrew and myself climbed out in a 2 up, Rob top of our little stack. 'Twas great flying with Andrew, our unrehearsed ballet had us took it in turn to core the best lift bits we could find, helping us get as high as possible.

We watched Rob zoom off and get drilled! Hmmm, there's some horrendous sink about, a warning that we must be cautious. Our climb out faded, so I shouted to Andrew and pointed to what looked like the best patch of sky and set off only to see him scoot off in a more northerly direction.

Our paths crossed again a couple of boisterous climbs later, with him heading off toward Lynham. I managed to keep it going until Cirencester but an issue with my heated gloves robbed me of my concentration and height. I then watched as Paul flew over and away into the distance.

Landed at the new agricultural centre and sat talking to one of the lecturers about climate change whilst waiting for a taxi - What she had to say on the subject was scary!
