Our last day started damp and overcast and got wetter through the morning. It was mid-afternoon before it started getting brighter with the wind strengthening from the north west. A tiny patch of blue sky appeared over the airfield but not enough to encourage us to go flying as it was still raining at either end of the valley.
Instead everyone paid their bills and then we had lunch at the airfield. Afterwards Merv held a debrief session going through some of the logger traces from our flights.

mango sorbet, bread pudding, chocolate mousse and cheesecake
Whilst we didn't get to cruise along the main ridge we had some interesting flying with one wave day. Thanks to everyone for making it such an enjoyable week both in the air and on the ground.
P.S. Its sunny outside this morning now that we are leaving...
