First XC since Silver distance two weeks ago. Dithered around after start before setting off. Cautious initially. Conditions got better, but still need to be more decisive and move on to better lift (it was there). Good from Ledbury to Leominster, Blued out from LEO to TAL and really odd thermals - assume wave influence etc. Confidence building and still trying to get used to flying XC glider style rather than Paraglider style. Comedy moment: Camelback burst on me so flew the whole flight sitting in 2L of water!
