19 Jan 17  Thurs.  Abernant.
First sortie of the year. The sun was out as I travelled to the hill, but the wind looked very light and w'ly, though on arrival the wind was brisk and east :) With heated-gloves (and 2 kg battery) attached, TO and spent an hour boating around the winter sky. The sunshine faded to leave an over-cast gloom, but with the help of a few weak thermals got to the dizzy height of 350' ato. Good to get one's feet off the ground again; a great feeling even in an air temperature of 1.c
Also enjoying the day: Viv, Aaron, Nick and Peter
