A BCC round from Hay Bluff, what a treat and a big thank you to the SEWales club for organising and running it. BCC rules are you can fly whatever flight you like for your team as long as the XCL will accept it but you won't get the multiplier for circuits or out and return, just the turnpoint distance.

Quite a few guys decided to set goal in England, Swindon or Hungerford and several did make it or close to but I have always wanted to try a Black Mountains triangle and decided that if it looked like it would work when I got in the air then I would have a go. I have flown up from Pandy to Hay Bluff and back and flown down to Crickhowell from Hundred House but I have never joined things up or flown from Hay Bluff to Llangorse.

I took off and after quite a bit of faffing around got some decent height and started to work my way down the ridge towards Talgarth but I have to say it was a bit of a struggle. I wanted to head over to the lovely clouds out in front but every time I headed out and found a climb it took me back to the ridge. Pushing on I realised Phil was with me and flying together was great, I don't think we have managed it for years, certainly not on an XC.

A lovely climb over Pengenfford took me along to Llangorse for a sightseeing trip around the lake taking in the lovely views over the Brecon Beacons towards the Severn Estuary. Phil and I lost one another at this point, he headed back for an out and return and I carried on. Another climb to just over 5000' and I could see Crickhowell ahead but at this point the climbs had become quite rough and the sky over the Beacons was blueing out so I wondered if the sea breeze had arrived.

I pushed on but was starting to get tired with a bit of brain fade so decided to go for 2 legs of my triangle and aim for the campsite at Pyscodlyn and tea and cake - like you do!

2 flying days in a row - what a treat.
