The weather had not looked promising but we were lucky with our usual timing. It was showery during the drive from Hackney but there was no rain on Blackheath.
SSW with low clouds and the occasional brightness. The breeze was probably 12 mph with occasional higher spells so we were flying mid-vents with Race Rods.
Nothing called today but we had musical accompaniment and the occasional passing murmuration of starlings.
It seems very early but we are getting asked about plans for 2018. It is 30 years for the team so we might have to do something special <grins>
