16/05/2004 - Tim Pentreath, 24.4km from Talybont
After a long sweaty walk up and a bit of sitting around at the top a good cycle came through and Ken, Stephen, Jim and I were on our way to base at 5000'. There was only the slightest northerly drift...
Ken cranks it up
Jim's there too...
The glide to Talybont village was horrible - big sink much of the way, but the
brown fields and the hill worked, so it was back to base, this time at 5700'
I found the climb before Ken & Stephen and left them far below :-)
(This is zoomed in !)
Then it was over Llangorse Lake, after which Ken and I
skirted just to the west of the Black Mountains
Another glide, another cloud...
But all good things come to an end, and eventually the ground rose up to meet me :-)
A great day, a great flight!
