There was only going to be a narrow window of opportunity today before the rain arrived.
The southerly breeze was reasonably consistent probably 8-10mph so mid-vents with race rods felt comfortable most of the time. Still getting to know the 15 inch handles on a new set of leaders but there were no issues today.
At the end of July Blackheath was brown underfoot. It is now mostly back to a new growth of green.
The rain started soon after 11:00am and is still steady in Hackney at 12:30…
