Snowdon Revisited

 this time without the engine!

I did a Snowdon out and return about ten years ago, but had to use the engine on the way back. I was determined to do it without the engine. I launched at 11.15 but when I got to the Cotswolds it was 8/8s and I nearly turned around and came home. For some reason I hung around between Moreton in Marsh and Edgehill for an hour and a half. Gradually the gloom began to break up and I pushed on, crossing the Severn at 13.30. Conditions improved all the way with 5 or 6 knot climbs for a while. I turned Snowdon at 15.40 and had a steady run back, slowing down as conditions weakened. The last climb was at Kiddlington and that put me on a squeeky final glide, landing at 19.30. A very pleasant day out.

Well done Geoff - what an epic adventure, and an 'interesting' final glide!

Nice one Geoff. Why isn't it on the ladder.
