Report from Ringstead

   
It was Ringstead again! Different today due to the fact that the wind decoded to be SSW and the Ranges were not Firing. ( Although a Red Flag was at full mast?).

2 keen Pilots were off and gone and started to go around the White Nothe, other swiftly followed. I lent my Coastal Wing to Skippy to ground handle while I assisted launching Grant and passenger on the Tandem.He definitely worked hard showing James the delights of a trip to Dungy Head, later taking Hayley to White Not the.

I ventured to Durdle Door and felt a change in direction and headed back into wind to the White Not the, took some footage and landed for lunch.Shortly afterwards we were visited by Peter Robinson who came for a looksee now that he no longer flies.

It was not an epic day and the initial 2 Pilots never made it back to take off and decided on alternative forms of transport.

Report from Ringstead

  

Well would you believe RASP, Grant says its a pile of Poo.

So we didn't go to Bell, and Ringstead although generally WSW proved flyable allowing good height gains above White Nothe. Some came to practise Alpine launches before they fly to Montegrappa, some came to soar the ridge, some went to the cliffs and some went to the beach. Steve S went to ferry them back to the T.O.

Always worth a go at Ringers especially with so little positive news from Bell or Monksdown.
