This morning started very wet indeed but by lunch time the bad stuff had passed and the fleet was rigged.
Everyone was soon batting up and down the ridge and climbing away in wave, with views of the seaside, iron age forts, the Jubilee tower and lots of lovely countryside, some of it quite wet. The field off the runway and peri track is also quite wet, so the rule about keeping off the grass has a lot to be said for it if you don't want to get covered in mud. All good fun though. And one happy person is Nik von Merveldt who finally completed his Bronze by demonstrating that he could get to the end of the runway on landing. It was also his first time ridge and wave flying, the grin when he landed was quite something.
