  • julian B slopes around there a fair bit, theres lantic bay near fowey and something beginning with H, harland? point just to the west of looe he reccomends
    bit further afield theres dodman, and staggys only just over an hour away
    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.

  • Whereabouts on Rame ? Love that area. I get down that way a few times every year and it's always a pleasure.

  • I flew sort of in front of the coast gard place... first time it was on the left (south?) as you look at the chapel thing and the second time it was on the right (deffo sw as i bought a compass).  it was good with a huge landing area... i think if you walked even further along the cliff towards whitesand bay it would have been even better as I was sort of flying in the shadow of the outcrop with the chapel on, but perfectly flyable.
