What an amazing day out! The forecast ended up looking too strong for Plan A which had been the Malverns so Rybury looked like it would be doable. I launched first at 11:00 and had an hour playing on the ridge before climbing out with Graham Steel at 12:00. The rest of the guys climbed out in the next thermal and Graham pushed back to join them while I continued.

I took a relaxed view to pushing on at the start as the wind was doing all the work. It was only once Graham and the others caught me that we started doing some serious crosswinding towards Andover in order to get round the airspace later on. It turns out that we needed to start early as it was only just enough. I split from Graham as he chose to head out under the 4500 ft block and I went round it. Typically though, once under the 6500 ft airspace I couldn't find a decent climb, having spiralled away from the airspace earlier on at 5500.

After Chichester I caught Graham again and we worked the sea breeze front past the Dyke and Brighton. It was a first for both of us, and we shared it with the sailplanes who were cruising up and down. The front pushed inland all the way up to the 2500 ft LTMA and we got more and more squeezed (away from our goal too). Eventually we fell out and landed on the cricket field at Uckfield, during the tea time break in play. The fine people there were so pleased to have us drop in that the Club gave us a beer each on the house. I guess we looked like we needed it after 5 hrs 30 in the air!
