Report from Portland West

   
0830 1 degree C on Take Off Brrrr.

0900 in the air and only 20' above the cliffs? Soon joined by 4 others then five then six all doing figures of eight to stay in the air. Fingers starting to feel very cold, landed changed to heated gloves and suddenly the sea thermals were drifting through. These allowed height gains to 299.92Ms ( just for Grant) or 984' for those used to imperial measurements. We were exploring all over Fraggle Rock and along Chesil Beach. Then about 1100 it all died off. These conditions are only experienced once or twice a year at Portland West so we struck lucky in between the storms. Thanks to John Wref (Condors) for some of the photos.
