During Saturday  and Sunday the wind shifted  to the east and became mildly thermic. Flight times were lower but great fun.

Chris and I latched onto a good thermal and climbed to Cloud base which was at 2500ft then ran a street all the way to the coast  at Kirkcaldy without turning. The final glide back was devoid of any lift but the Janus got us back with 900ft to spare.

Monday  and Tuesday have been wet but it looks like Wednesday afternoon onwards  will be good again.
