Unexpected and amazing low climb out with Luke. We then joined a few others and pushed out in front towards the clouds. I followed the four big boys, but got low near Uckfield and landed. Whilst they managed to fly back and finish their triangle, I had the most fantastic retrieve. I was welcomed to have a swim in the best nature pool ever, full of water lilies, was offered a cold drink and was then given a lift back to Caburn. Perfect day, finished off with a swim in the sea!
