The next cub coaching meeting will be held (as always) at Glynde Social Club on August 28th at 7.30pm. The topic will be harnesses, and Tim King has kindly agreed to give a talk and guidance on the subject.

This will be a great chance for us all to understand more about how to set up a harness properly, what harness is best for the wing we fly, how each harness affects the performance of our wing and so on.

You will be more than welcome to bring your harness along to get help in setting it up properly and have it looked at by someone who knows what they are talking about.

Hi all
I will sadly not be able to attend the next club meeting as I will be away in France working on a tan.
It seems I will be missing an extremely interesting talk and I would like to thank Carlo Borsattino of Flybubble Paragliding for making all the arrangements for what promises to be a great night, I copy Carlo's briefing below.

The next club lecture will be at Glynde Social club on Thursday May 29th starting at 7.30pm.
This will be a Southern club sites Guide given by Dave Massie
Dave will be talking about how to get the most out of the sites, such as the Brighton run/ Truligh run / Ditchling ridge run / Firle run and so on.
He will also be talking about some of the dangers and what to look out for and how to get the very best from the sites in general.
This I believe will be a very valuable talk to us all and especially to the newer members.
