No words of optimism ,or words of wisdom ,can help with the forecast and its outcome, for this weekend and leading up to it,this must have been ,unless others know better ,the longest period of fly-less weather on our sits in recent years.
When will it end,you tell me.........

After two weekends at beachy head with various skills needed to stay airbourne,most improved on their slope and top landings,and we must not forget that scratching skill that takes us all the way too the bottom at times,but the walk up is always better then drooping your wing over those pesky big bushes,as some flying folk just didnt leave a margin for turning away from the hill ,when things get a little less buoyant,Good to see no ribs in those trees . :)
