08/07/2012 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 08 July 2012 · 159 views

I set off for Blackheath this morning in a deluge and did not expect to get much flying today.

On arrival the rain was settled but there did appear to be some brightness to the north and west. Half an hour later wandering across to look at the temporary 'footbridge' at the entrance to the now closed Greenwich Park the rain eased. A quick fly seemed in order; standard 1.5 sails with race rods and full brake worked today.

It wasn't long before the rain started again and it became evident that the showers were potentially thundery. I am particularly risk averse in these circumstances and even though the sun shone again as we left Blackheath the bubbling cumulus formations were a clear warning.

There was some activity on http://www.isleofwig..._storm_data.htm but at the time of writing things seem to have calmed down somewhat.
