After a cable break, I launched again. The difference was astonishing. Low down things were a bit of a struggle but improved with height, and, from 2000 ft to the cloudbase at 4200 above the airfield took very little time in what was now an 8 knot thermal. I wandered off to the north to visit the reservoirs at Roadford and Meldon and then on to Okehampton to see if I could find the house I lived in 44 years ago. There was evidence of sea air from the north and south coasts with large areas of blue and weak thermals beyond.

He was airborne for 4 hours 44 minutes and had flown a total of 302km. Excellent.
