The weather changes fast in Wales. Grey skies at the start gave way to perfect cloud streets and then developed into windy conditions which forced some of the athletes to use their feet rather than their wings by the Saturday afternoon. “What a great weekend!” was the general feedback from the participants at the end of it all!
