Well what a day - modest task set which proved to be a bit too ambitious at first - very slow progress north in blue, mirky haze with haze caps. Got east of Builth and started picking out fields (not a lot of choice, small, sloping in all directions and mostly filled with stock). Got a get out of jail thermal over high ground just south of Llandod but decided that was enough excitement for one day so headed home. On way back could see a line of small cu over the Brecon Beacons so headed in that direction and then had a great time in strong convergence all the way to Llandeilo and back - final glide 40km says it all!!
