15:50 Hill Launch : Firle : Sting 3:168 : 01:14 : Wind increased but silky smooth air. Glad I put the second flight in. Found it hard to come down. Top landed near car park.
12:00 Hill Launch : Firle : Sting 3:168 : 01:33 : Thermic conditions; too windy for paragliders. Thermals everywhere and very rough in places. Used the Myth 3 harness and rehearsed getting onto the uprights when up high. Top landed in PG bowl with no issues.
