Dorset Is Chuffing Klass Slopers

As there is a room now thought I might start a thread :)

I just got back from a few hours flying at portland and it was great. some nice F3F practice indeed.

Anyway, if you fancy meeting up a fly post up :)

Oh Ringstead bay.
What a nice place to fly.
Was working down at blamford forum back in May, and managed to fly there every night of the week after work.
Put around 6 hours on the new ceres lift.
Real nice looking out over Waymouth and the sea.
Shame I had to come back home really.
I'm hoping for another trip down there before the summer ends.

I was going to try and fly the purbecks when I was there, but it was pretty much on ringstead all week.

Smashing part of the world and some ok slopes too.
Today Matthew I am going to be wing section MH32.

Yeah that sounds great.

Ringsteads lift is super smooth straight off the sea.  :af

I haven't been down that far yet flying. I have seen photos of people flying off the cliffs at seatown east of there.

My normal flying sites are (copy lat longs into google maps)

Portland for SW-W 50.534848, -2.453474 probably works NW but not experienced that yet. good landing zone for mouldies

Sutton Poyntz for SW-SSE 50.661189, -2.414301 I don't like much east here, but its flyable. good landing zone for mouldies

Ringstead for SSW 50.640788,-2.348673 good landing zone for mouldies

Worth Matravers for SW-W 50.593735,-2.058613 West is a bit bumpy due to the hill on the other side of the bay. in SW-SSW landing zone okish for mouldies if you have crows. So far we have been landing near the slope lip without getting over the fence climibing thingy (can't remember their name lol).

Maiden Castle for NNW-NE 50.696915,-2.470273 not very mouldy friendly unless you can land on the fiels in front of the slope.....I have only flown foam there. also watch out forrotor between the ramparts. you can fly off the middle one, but be careful not o get sucked into the rampart (misses). foamies + maiden castle + northerly = fun =  If you crash + keep yers fit.

Always on the look out for more slopes though :)

rcfanuk, Charmouth has a flying site right there.  On the other side of the river from Charmouth town centre is about a mile of cliffs, I think the main part is known as Cain's Folly, those are nice flying cliffs in southerlies.

Here's some directions:
"To get there, turn left out of Newlands Holiday camp, after about 300 metres turn sharp left and follow the narrow road that leads to the top of the hill (a dead end).  Just after you go over the cattle grid there is a car park (free) on the right.  Look for the gate on the right that marks the path that leads down to the cliffs and the flying site."

Four I can think of there are Portland cliffs, White Nothe cliffs, Sutton Poyntz bowl and Maiden Castle.

Here's a link to a Google map, move it to Weymouth and you'll see these four sites.  Others on this forum will know more about these sites than me.

Just got back from a week down by Weymouth, unfortunately not enough wind/lift for a Venom, might have got away with an Allula.

no worries :)

Yeah its mouldy compatible. Although its not my favourite hill on that list. It is ideal if the wind is right and the weather is marginal (wet)...as you can just jump in yer car.  Portland is probably my fav :)....if you are happy chucking a plane off a cliff.

Ringstead.

Any advice for this site, wind --s--ssw, is it packed with walkers and paragliders etc  in the summer months being a NT site, hopefully looking to have a few weekends there this year.    :af

Yeah wind SSW or so is good. sutton poyntz is good too for S with a bit of room either side. its less busy from groccles, the odd walker, mountainbiker, horse rider, sheep. jelly fish tend to fly other hills from my experience.

Yeah I think it can be busy up ringstead, cars to crash into too if you get it wrong (I heard a story that a few years a go someone crashed into the side of a Renault 5 door and put a whole in it...the renault that is), I don't tend to fly up there on days when it might be popular. Its more of a reserve place for me and my mate if the weather is ropey. although my last session there a couple of weeks back was ok. portland and chapmans poole are way better....although the smooth lift flatters and spoils you hehe. go on.....give portland a go.....you'll love it. just walk back for the landing :).

Thanks RustyKnee + Mr ED, Ringstead sounds like it could get busy with a few targets, your other site of Worth Matravers (chapmans pool ) i know well but have never seen any flying there.

Perhaps i will give it a go------ land of the brave-----????

Hi Guys.   Coming down for a weeks holiday very soon with the family staying close to Weymouth.  I'm sure i'l fit a model or two in the car  ;) Any suggestions please for the best sites and wind directions for them, around weymouth/ Portland and any important info/rules for them.

Post 6 has most sites locally with position and wind direction, there are other smaller sites I haven't flown. You can copy the lat longs into google maps. PM me nearer the time if you fancy meeting up for a burn :).

  Cheers Stu :af  I'l do as you suggested regarding the lat/longs on google.   I had seen your previous post but thought i'd better check for any "Do's & donts" as i wouldnt want to mess up any possible flying site agreements for the local flyers :banghead:

Ah yes...completely forgot to answer that bit. Most sites don't have frequency control, so keep yer eyes peeled. I generally fly on channel 70 (But is synth so I can change), or 2.4GHz. Some times the christchurch club fly at Ringstead, if they are there they have a peg board (A twirly wind sock thingy). Common sense really, if you see someone flying ask em what channel. I don't know of any power clubs near the sites listed. Although I am switching over to 2.4GHz so I can be a flying nomad :). Ringstead is also national trust, so I guess insurance is required....I find it best to have it anyway....just incase.

Not many Stu's generally :)....although I know a few online playing on the PS3, can get confusing if nick names aren't used on the voice comms :) (My other geeky passtime :) )

Just got back from a couple of hours at worth matravers (chapmans pool) with a good westerly with such smoooth lift, if only the sun had been out it would have been perfect, got back to the car and it poured down !
as per usual not another sloper to be seen, starting to worry that people see me coming,pack up and go home ?

Would just like to Add ,

 Portland Is the most amazing flying around the south of Dorset  :af, Incredible lift in even light conditions . This is a link to a Live Wind Anemometer in Portland harbour.
    Portland 2 Wind Data

   I have flown here nearly every week for the past year or so , I would also say that i have flown here in WNW, pushing NW , W ,WSW pushing SW . Both NW and SW depends on Wave direction , cos on occasion with the wind in the same direction there is No lift. That is not often though. Also its nice to share the Skys with Seagulls , Kestrels and the odd Peregrine Falcon , Its a Beautiful site . Landing Zone is Good But the Rotor is not for the faint of heart .

As far as Sutton poyntz goes its not only a Good slope (Best south slope i know ) its a Bowl so wind can be a bit variable in its direction so i would say from SW to SE South being the Best ,also its a Nice spot to pick up thermals from as they flow up the valley from Osmington. Great Landing Zone no rotor at all , Another very pretty slope you can see all across Weymouth and out to Portland. Buzzards and seagulls show you where to get the lift

 Ringstead is a convenient Slope , you drive, park open boot and fly , the walking involved is about 50 meters from the car , it flys well with a SW to S wind ,I would say lift is good , but not excellent , the buildings on the farm create some very strange pockets of lift , which get yer nerves twitching at times .


There is also another site called Chalbury Hill fort , It faces for East wind only and lift is good , Landing is a little dodgy if your to close to the ends of the slope because the wind washes around the sides and can take the unsuspected by surprise . But on the top its fine as long as its not coming in to fast.


  Ive flown alot around Weymouth Portland and Dorchester . Its a nice place to be , I live on Portland and Westcliff is only a 3 min walk(although i take my car)
Heres a link to a video of Portland and Ringstead just to give you an Idea

anyway as Stu says give a shout if your about  :uk:

somehow managed to miss your reply bob :). Nice addition.

A note on the portland wind data site....it only works properly with internet explorer....it doesn't work in mozilla or any other browser i have tried, and most annoyingly my phone! but then if you are at portland you can through your phone up in the air and see which way it blows....or grass if you like.

Ringstead was good today, quite busy though. couple of muppets parked where they shouldn't....they didn't seem to mind glider flybys.....they would if 3 kilos of tragi came through the back window at speed though haha.

Down Thursday morning. Forecast is looking good for Thursday/Friday at least. Bringing down the Brio to re-maiden and the Needle for it's first flight.

I may be able to get out for a bit of Portland fun on Sat too, hope it doesnt swing any more south or we'll end up at sutton poo or ringpiece ::)

Got an annoying repair on the skorp to get done first, had a really slow motion tip drap and flop over tonight and it broke the machined Ali elevator horn! Bummer bad luck batman!  Serves me right for going and flying at Creech, one of the worst slopes around!
