Report from Jurassic Coast

  
     
A quiet start so walked fifty yards , wind was sufficient to cross Hive. As the wind steadily increased it was easy to cross Freshwater and West Bay. Built height at Thorncombe Beacon and on to Golden Cap. Then an easy run to Charmouth crossed the river towards Spittles, but saw 3 gliders just with enough height. So turned and went back to Golden Cap the wind was increasing so headed for West Bay where there were whitecaps and no-one at Eype. Answered the phone to Steve who had made it just shy of Abbottsbury (Hurrah) asking for a lift.
So landed at Cogden and packed only to be told Rene was heading his way. Oh well! Derek landed just east of Swyre, Sean and Tony landed just shy of Portesham for a great flight.

Report from Ringstead

  
     
Well the forecast got it completely wrong. It was one for the cliffs beach landed , then another beach landed, and another bottom landed. One managed to stay up for a while having seen the others go down. As I retrieved from the beach one managed to get to the cliffs for a short while and he top landed .

Report from White Horse

  
     
An up & down sort of day. The thermals did not allow a lot of height gain but a pleasant enough time was had by all.

Report from White Horse

   
A good day at the Horse bit rock and roll to start but it eventually smoothed out.
Several Red Ribbons getting the hours in, frustrating for some trying to thermal. Its all an experience.

Report from Jurassic Coast

   
A beautiful clear day wit a strengthening breeze , in the end too strong to cross West Bay where 3 Pilots landed.
The retrieve back earned an ice cream courtesy of Curtis B. And thanks to Steve for collecting them as well as one who landed at the bottom of Golden Cap.
