Wow, first ones on the Beacon!

11am and Peggy and I met at the Beacon with clouds popping, little or no wind, bright sun, and an empty hill. We slowly set up whilst watching out front for any signs the air was bubbling. Smoke in front indicated what little wind there was blew along the hill not up it. Hmmm.

Still, we had our first 10 minute hop and came back on top. Then we waited. And waited and.

Another pilot arrived so we waited some more! We decided to just go for it when a crow started circling in the smoke in front (not a bad sign really! ). Then the rush began. I either missed or couldn't find the lift and was ready to execute a landing on the little playing field, but pulled off the lowest save my heart could handle, and stuck with it until I was well clear of the hill. By this time Peggy had climbed out so tracked with her albeit 1,000 lower until we reached the outskirts of Worcester, where I finally got a decent climb and joined Peggy at base.

The wind was strange and kept changing, one minute 6 kph behind us, the next 20 kph in our faces. We made it as far as Pirton before decking it. Another 2 hrs in the saddle - nice!
