A bleak outlook for the British Championships.

After a short XC from Bache Hill yesterday, with most of the BPC pilots landing at around 6km (Only John Ellison made the 40km or so to their goal at Montgomery), the expected poor weather has firmly estabilished itself, and of the many interpretations of the weather map made, very few seem hopeful.

Today, an interesting excursion to Ironbridge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, where iron was first smelted with coke.

We predict many more Shropshire cream teas over the coming days in the tourist hotspots. Shrewsbury tomorrow, unless the weather forecast is hopelessly wrong.
