An early start up and thanks to Cloudbase Paragliding for use of Rudlers West Hill. Met Lee and the students at 9ish and headed up to the hill top. Nice if a bit light to start with for some soaring and then it became much stronger and pleasant. Met Wingman John on the hill and we continued to fly until it dropped off completely mid day. The wind eventually picked up again early afternoon and with a bit more cloud cover we headed up. It was a little thermic at times but not enough to turn in as yet. Good chance to fly way out from the hill and explore. Ended with a flight down to the track when it got too strong and a bit lumpy. A nice day and about 3 hours flying bagged.
