Unfortunately the 2009 LCC was a total wash out. The preparation party enjoyed a memorable week before the event with long sunny days and enjoyable flying. The Friday morning started with low cloud and rain. After a morning in Keswick, both comps moved to Carrock Fell. We walked up the hill only to find the wind was more than 90 degrees off the hill. The Saturday was windy and wet.

Here's a selection of photos from the Friday - click on the photos for a larger image

Looks sunny doesn't it? Look carefully at the clothing if you want to know what sort of June day it was.
