Report from Ringstead

   
A pleasant day out at the coast in very cold conditions with some surprisingly good thermals for the time of year.
A short jaunt around the corner but not too far.
Adrian in his new Iota 2 and new Lightness 3 , Tom throwing some moves and Gordy mooching here and there and everywhere.

Report from North Hill (Somerset)

  

Wessex Posse planned this trip the night before left early and arrived in good time to see Pilots taking off and some already in the air over Minehead gaining good height.

Lovely Site flown between Oct and Mar due to local conditions, well worth a visit.
Briefed by locals.

Views across the Channel to Wales and some good coastal soaring with lovely thermals.
A jolly day out.

Report from Portland West

  

Another cracking day at Portland West with visitors from Avon, Condors and elsewhere.
Counted 11 wings at one stage, not seen that before.
Interestingly it is unusual to fly so often at this Site at this time of the year.
All landed safely.

Report from Bell Hill

  

What a start to the 2019, arrived at Bell( for the walk up) never seen so many vehicles in the road? Some braved the slippery grass and got to the top.

Robin counted 25 in the air and lots of flying to be had. The wind increased and some struggled to get down and then it became comfortable once again.

Red ribbon flying on his own some till end of day. We waited till he landed safely in the bottom field.
