30th April 2006

Most of UK under fronts or cloud but clearance over East Anglia. A brief soarable interlude allowed us to escape. Absolutely no wind and some big smooth thermals that eventually turned to a 5500' cloudbase with 6 kt thermals over Norfolk and Suffolk. A quick look at the Broads in sea air then South to Diss and Mendlesham. No problems until Gransden Lodge when a last climb gave us just enough height to glide home under grey overcast.
