Well, we sat all day (hours and hours) on a windy, cloudy hillside talking parab******s and generally being sociable while watching the hang gliders and a couple of comp wings disappear and reappear from the clag. Occasionally the cloud would lift a bit and the odd spot of sun appear but the wind stayed pretty constant.
A few pilots left to go and join those flying at Malvern, but having parked at the bottom (courtesy of the Pandy Inn, thank you) we (Lester and I, Phil had manflu! ) would have had to walk down to the car so decided to stay where we were.
Eventually, around 4.30pm the wind started to drop, a couple of wind dummies took off to show us the way and there was a mass scrabble to rig and launch.
I took off and headed off up the ridge into the gloom, finding decent lift under the clouds but being very conscious of the number of gliders around and trying not to get hoofed into anything. Had a very pleasant flight up to the Darrens and back to land at the bottom and adjourn to the Pandy Inn for some post flying chat.
Was it worth the wait - definitely - any flying is better than no flying!
