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.........
i will post fri night ,just in case things change,Ha Ha .

It will keep blowing , and continuing through the weekend ,and just to get peeps more frustrated .....beyond as far as the forecasts shows.

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 . :)

The parawaiters with the red ribs at Peachy Beachy on Sunday, got rewarded with a great sunset flight with good height to cruise well over the sea...to say the ribs were well happy would be an understatement.....
Now on too this weekend...
the week leading up to it looks rubbish, looks like it will settle down for the weekend...No more to say till fri night and that last minute call to arms....

It was a testing day for the newbies on sunday as launching was top end for some,but with persistence and a little help from other ground dwellers, all got in the air and had a great time,with a little thermic activity to spice things up for some little 360 action...and Scott D ,put on a great show ,right in front of take off and with all watching ,of how not to fly a hang glider slowly,(one lucky lucky man ).
