Report from Ringstead

     
Forecast was correct today, flyable from 1000hrs to 1230hrs. It then went very strong and gusty.
Some visiting Pilots joined those in Wessex not working. Good cliff soaring and sharing the air with a couple of Peregrine Falcons.

Report from Whitehorse

     
A good day at the Horse with many watching from Ringstead, where it was clearly not flyable.
Pilots were still enjoying good height after 1830hrs.
1400' amsl on occasion with lots of happy Pilots enjoying the consistent thermals.

Report from David Franklin

 
     
Bell Hill - Waited all day for things to calm down a bit which they finally did. When a long cloudy lull finally passed just after 6.00pm Darren and I took off and climbed steadily and pushed forward, at 7.00pm I flew over my house at just under 4,000ft amsl then landed behind just outside the garden. Worth the wait.


Report from Ringstead

   
     
A lovely day on the Coast as some are still unable to go XC. Well done Tony S & Robin W for their flights from Swallowcliffe & Bell. Congratulations to those making the transition to Ringstead Cliffs for the first time today.

Report from Ringstead

     
Well I did not see the point of trundling down to Eype when so many had made it clear thats where to head.
I plumped for good old faithful Ringers.
Arrived at 0855hrs with 2 already there and wings laid out. It felt fine to me and went straight out to cliffs followed by rest of the keen Pilots. Good to see Adrian B out after a long lay off, and also Richard G in recovery mode with lots of metal around his leg.
It was very pleasant for over an hour and a half, needed to land for a drink and back out with 16 on the cliffs and several more getting ready to fly. I noticed the wind getting fresher and some white water and thought OK time to land and what a landing, caught the foot inside the pod and tried to hop but draped the wing over Davids car, amusing and no damage.
