Managed to sneak out of work for a couple of hours today and had a go at flying Porthcurno. Wind about 15-17 mph but slightly more east than I'd hoped for. Worked for about 45 mins then wind started to slacken off and go more SE so elected to land because as you can see, very little bottom landing options with the tide in. Couldn't get the height on the into wind direction so was forced to come in down wind. Tried to come in deep in the landing field to give me plenty of room to float forward but got eaten by the sink monster before I could turn!! No damage done to me or the glider as luckily there was a thorn covered dry stone wall to break my fall! ... See MoreSee Less
Anyone fancy a d trip to Wales tomorrow (Tuesday) with Tim J and myself free transport and even evening meal included as long as you pick us up from somewhere at the end of the day :) Looks like a good day at Merthyr so you can even get some flying in space on the roof for a Hangy.
It's the BOS so plenty going on , could even be fun . Give Phippsy a call if you up for it. ... See MoreSee Less
