Wed 26th Feb – Ridge, wave and thermal!

At last some sunshine, albeit a cold and breezy start. Still after the awful winter so far it encouraged few members and one visitor to turn up and rig, and Dave A. got the DG505 out to give a some trips up the ridge. The weather turned out a bit better than forecast, with a moderate / occasionally brisk NW wind and the odd snow/sleet shower. Graham led the way into wave, others did the ridge run & we all enjoyed the wonderful visibility with spectacular view s of the snow covered Welsh hills and the sobering sight of the Severn Valley flooding stretching away north of Gloucester. Thanks to Gordon for launching and everyone who helped at the launch point.
