Wind: S, 12-15, gusting 18-20

Never flown here before (although I've visited a couple of times). Turned up just that little bit too late really, albeit not long after 11, but it was always going to be quite strong and, in fact, it was stronger than forecast, and off to the S. Joe Dart took off first, and it seemed to be working quite well, but it punchy as hell when I launched, and generally pretty "raucous". After taking a screamer, I decided to follow the edge of the hills all the way to Blorenge, where I crossed to Sugar Loaf. Although I did get one decent climb there, it was gnarly as hell, so I flew back across the valley to Gilwern.
