Unexpected wave to 7200

RASP indicated that wave was unlikely: No inversion (actually quite a high lapse rate) and wind veering markedly with height. However after morning tea (how civilised!) our eagle-eyed tug pilot Tony Crowden spotted an edge in the clouds in the lee of the Black Mountains overhead the Wye Valley. So off we went in search of it. After a lively tow through the rotor we eventually found 4 knots of the smooth stuff. All the way up to 7,200 feet. Running from Hay , past site and all the way down the Cwmdu Valley. A nice surprise for a trial lesson and Ray Smith who also joined me in K13. What a fabulous site we fly from.
