A Yorkshireman in Cornwall
« on: May 09, 2011, 17:38:34 PM »
Got back from walking the dog to find that my good lady had booked us a holidayat the beginning of June in a little place called Gwithian which is a little north of St Ives. Now it would seem a shame not to make use of some of those coastal sites so I'm planning on taking a glider along with me for the week. Unfortunately the dog is going to be taking up quite a lot of room which means luggage space is rather small. Out of my hanger though I reckon the best model to take is the Pixel 2 as it all pulls apart and will be easy to find a gap in amongst all the luggage. The Pixel wouldn't be the model of choice but it's efficient and agile enough to have a fair amount of fun with.

So, being a responsible flier I thought it would be a good idea to ask on here for any advice on where would be good to fly while we're down there and if I need to make contact to ask for permission etc.

Dave

PS - And if we do bump into each other while flying you'll know who I am cos of the funny accent!

GWITH! you lucky sod! you owe the good lady wife big time

beautiful 3 mile long beach, perfect 20' dunes to slope, you really will love it.
you've got N-NE sorted on the beach, and South within walking distance, NW-E a little further if you wanted to take the dog out for a few hours over at Godreavy.
The power site is mile and a bit behind you tho, but it's never been an issue before.
St Aggy is 20mins by car.

Gwith has a lovely little pub, and also a slightly more upbeat surfy pub down the road called sandsifter.
the NT carpark has a lovely little cafe as does sunset surf.
check here for local webcam http://www.sunsetsurfshop.co.uk/
be warned the carpark at gwithian will sting you, but the beach is a short walk from the centre of the village anyway.

Hayle is the nearest town for supplies, a stop in Philps bakery is recommended for a real pasty, and nip across the road to Mr B's ice cream parlour afterwards.

when you down??
I know you believe you understand what you think i said, but i am not sure you realise that what you think you heard is not what i meant.

Steady on using the 'W' word, she may start to get ideas!

We're down on the 4 June for a week but plan to travel around quite a bit while down there. It's ages since I was down in Cornwall (family hols in Newquay) so really looking forward to seeing it again.

So is it okay to just fly where I want or are there any club controlled slopes? I'm on 2.4GHz so won't be interefering with anyone although I don't want to just launch off anywhere if it's frowned upon.

Thanks for the advice regarding the local food and drink. I'm sure we'll enjoy searching those places out!

slope wise nothing is controlled, we have regular slopes but theres no club.
don't be a nob rule applies at all times of course :D
your unlikely to meet anyone unless you went to Staggy tho.
of course theres also www.propercornishslopers.co.uk for the wind compass and slope guide

Just looking on Ebay to see if there are any cheap roof boxes and bars so I could take more of my fleet along!

There are lots of good spots down here and plenty more to be discovered. Like Cactus says.

There's everything from dune flying to whopping great cliffs with smooth roll over for minimum rotor, a few in land sites that nobody botheres with, and even the odd DS opportunity depending on wind direction.

Have a look on the web site Cactus mentioned, Hexo does a great job of keeping that running and it's a real useful guide. Worth posting on the Cornwall thread here nearer the time. If conditions are right a bunch of us will meet up with you after work at Aggie for a fly and to say hello. There's also a wealth of local knowledge on where to go and not to go in Cornwall if you want it, although you might start an argument on where the best pastys are.  ;)

We might need a bit more that the accent, we get a lot of that this time of year. Enjoy your trip, you've got a great base.

Thanks for the information. All very appreciated. Yes, I'll post again when we're closer to going and a meet up could be fun.

Nice one! Sloping in Cornwall. Bliss.

Likely moving down there myself later this year. Already re-stocking the fleet after 18 months in the doldrums... ;-)

Here's the newest...

Just a week and a half to go to our hols. Unfortunately the roofbox plan is not going to happen so unless we leave the dog at home (unlikely) then space for models is going to be tight. It look's like it's just going to be the Pixel then as that all pulls apart to quite a nice small package.

I trust you Cornishmen can guarantee us some scorching hot breezy weather?  ;D

It's getting close so I thought I'd better make sure the Pixel was ready for the journey and some Cornish air. It's ages since I flew it so had to install a new Spektrum receiver and battery and get it all balanced up. Was a lovely evening here so thought it was a good opportunity to make sure everything was okay and I sneaked up to my local slope.

With the Pixel being a pitcheron type it's very difficult to know when the incidence is correct so it was quite a relief when it just flew out straight and level. In the past I've never really got that excited about the Pixel but tonight I really enjoyed it's uniqueness compared to the usual racing foamies and mouldies that I fly. At one point I picked up a huge thermal and the model was just a speck.

Anyway, I'll dismantle the model now and get it ready for the journey on Saturday. I've got a netbook with mobile broadband so will probably get in touch while I'm down there and perhaps we can meet up?

If you want to see the more secluded less skanky less touristy parts of Cornwall come down south ;)

We fly most days if the winds anything but NNW.

Yes, and look out for the ferrets and whippet too. Actually he's a Pointer and if you've got a squirrel problem when we arrive you won't by the time we leave!

Well she's only gone and done it again! Yes, it's holiday time again.

May 16th will see the Skirmish Family on it's way down to Cornwall for another week of fun. This time we're staying at Constantine Bay, just below Padstow.

So you know what I'm now going to ask.

Any good slopes around that area as I'm definitely bringing at least one toy along with me.

Plus most of 'em ave been eaten :)

There are some good slope s if the wind goes t*ts (east) as well, look at Hore point (one of my favourite sites bags of lift) and Dodman point/ Vault beach. I like Dodman but you have to walk zillions of miles to get there though - results are good when you arrive with a corking view over snozzle bay.

Dave

There are some fantastic slopes in the immediate area Dave:
1. The dunes at Constantine itself (best in the evening when the crowds start to go) - bring something lightweight (W);
2. Trevose Head and some great cliff soaring - not in the same league as Staggies, good for W,NW,N,NE - if the gulls aren't flapping chuck your mouldies off. E is possible but you need to be very confident. SW is difficult but do-able and very rewarding. Overall a very versatile site but car parking charges are a pain, watch out as clamping is possible.
3. Harlyn Bay - if you like a challenge the 10m high path is good, walk along a short distance from the car park towards Trevone, keep your eye on the gulls and how they're flying, gulp and off you go. Landing can be a problem if the field is in crop as there's only a small unpoughed strip to test your spot landing skills, or catching the model (W,NW).
4. Take a coast walk with your model heading south from Treyarnon and there are plenty places that are flyable, mostly W
5. A bit further south Pentire Steps is good for SW.

Have a nice time.

Thanks for that, some excellent information there. Looks like my good lady has found a veritable slope soaring paradise for me!  :) Providing the weather holds it seems I'll get some great soaring in while down there.

The next decision is what model or models to take. Last year I took the Pixel as it's so easy to transport but I would rather like to take something a little more moulded this time if possible. The trouble is my favourite 60" mouldie is an X'Race with a one piece wing. It would be a great model to have down there but I'm not sure if I can safely fit in the car along with a weeks luggage and a Pointer with big feet!

Anyway, plenty of time to make that decision.

As long as your dog doesn't lie with its legs in the air try strapping the wing above you, string something between the grap handles above the doors and fasten your wing on that. SWMBO might have to duck a bit but that's a small price to pay!

Yup, rope between the rear grab handles and front end of the wing tucked under the sun visor/shade.

Well the Yorkshireman, his wife (yes it's all official now) and his dog are heading down to Cornwall again in late May. This time we're staying on the other coast down in a place called Gorran Haven, just south of Mevagissey.

I'll definitely be bringing a glider or two along with me which will probably include the Pixel and a NAN Mega 2m mouldie.

So, are there any good slopes down this area and are there any clubs I could get in touch with?

Cheers
Dave

Well we'll be heading south on Saturday morning and I'll be bring my NAN Mega 2m mouldie along with me.

Dodman looks like a good site. Is it possible to drive close to the soaring sites or is it a bit of a trek? Tried to find Nare but couldn't see it on Google maps.

Any other places within reasonable driving distance? I may well get across to the other side and do Sta Agnes again too.

Can anyone recommend good eating/drinking places close to where we're staying in Gorran Haven?

Cheers

Dave, Dodman is a bit of a hike from the car park. Unless you are with your good lady, who could drop you off perhaps, I think the road goes right to the end. But no parking.

Don't look ideal, you can fly the beacon at staggies in all directions, might be fun with a light mouldie in light winds. Look behind to the hill and walk up it. Knowing, Where you are based, SW E check out dodman worth the hike.

Theres a small carpark at Dodman but it's about 15 mins walk to the slope. you're not allowed to park on the road that drives along the other large slope.
to be honest the winds look light for tomorrow and on the north theres been sea mist most days
I know you believe you understand what you think i said, but i am not sure you realise that what you think you heard is not what i meant.

It will be nice to get a session or two while I'm down there and I'll probably give Dodman a try. Suspect over the next week the weather will change a bit too so I may well get over the North coast too.

Car half packed and setting off 6am so should be there lunchtime.

Had a great time in your lovely county but unfortunately never got to do any sloping.
On the plus side I consumed many a Pasty (the best one being at the Eden Project) and also various other good foods at the many eating places. We stayed at Gorran Haven and ventured to various places between Looe and St Mawes. The latter is a very nice place however I suspect one needs a fair amount in the bank to reside there.

We escaped home on Saturday and I'm definitely glad we weren't going the other way as the roads into Cornwall (and Devon) were a nightmare. It actually took us 8 hours to get home which was an hour longer than the trip down.

Anyway, as before we really enjoyed our stay and we'll be back again some time.
