Very slow and difficult first part of first leg in the strong crosswinds but then I contacted wave just SE of Welshpool topping out at over 8k ft, rounding the turnpoint and using the wave all the way back to Knighton where it disappeared (or more likely I just lost it). I abandoned original task as the weather started to close in from the west eventually landing as it started to rain. Very interesting flight despite not having achieved what I'd originally set out to do.
