St Mawes has a millionaire's row, but like a lot of Cornwalls finest places someone saw fit to bolt on a $h*thole of an estate and it's pretty rough. Fowey is even worse.

A Yorkshireman in Cornwall

You were fortunate with the weather. Bank holiday was terrible. Anyway, I did get over to dodman and fly. I suspect you took a hike around it. The walk to the slope is pretty easy, not far and level. Although i did trip on a step by the 'gate' and broke my speedi. On a hot day it's glorious.

Yes, the weather was pretty good for us. The forecasts were quite gloomy at times but the bulk of the rain seemed to fall during darkness.

We did do a walk up to Dodman Point (the Cross) but never really got the opportunity to take a glider up there. The walk back from the point was rather eventful as our dog kept chasing badgers. We don't encounter these where we live so it was new to him and he didn't half growl while chasing. On all occasions the badger made an easy escape into undergrowth. There was another occasions when several more badgers were encountered and I was amazed just how common they are around there.

Cactus - Never really came close to the estates you mention and I'm sure they pale into insignificance compared to some of the Northern ones I've seen in my time. Thought both Fowey and St Mawes were pretty nice places.

you reckon? where do you think they ship the worse to when they get evicted? the council that takes them gets paid, and in parts of PZ you only ever hear northern accents. very rough in some parts round ere.

good thing your dog didn't corner a badger, last one i heard did lost it's lower jaw.
They are strong strong animals!

Hey  folkes.

The Charlie C caravan complete with SWMBO is heading to St Agnes on Saturday for a couple of weeks.

I only have the Radian with me but there must be somewhere i can chuck it without losing it.

Any hints or tips would be most welcome.

Cheers

Charlie, Weather looks good for the weekend and even the next week, bring yourself along on Sunday to the cliff and introduce yourself, we can give you a few hints/tips on flying spots. Flying the radian though you will need to band up the prop before launch as prop driven models arent permitted.

keep an eye on the weather charlie, we should be up there some time tis weekend.
don't worry about banding the prop, just don't use the throttle.
wind speeds look about 14mph so at the top of what it'll take. theres a power club on "teagel straight" these days if you want a quick flat field fix

Hi Guys,

Just back from St Agnes. Deffinately going back, next time with a proper sloper soarer, oh for my old Alpina   :banghead:

Flew a fair few times, met a few guys who were really helpful and had a ball.

Sadly, the wind at the weekend would have had the wings off the Radian so I went down and had a bit of a chat but stayed out of the way.

Gonna go back. Maybe in September  :xx

Being a prat, I don't remeber the names of the guys I spoke to, but thanks to you all.
