Visited a couple of possible new flying sites today on Exmoor...North Molton Ridge and Martinhoe Common, both not suitable, although I`m looking forward to Winsford Punchbowl, so anyone with more info on this one please post it.

I'll double check with one of the guys I know, who flies off there, and get back to you with a definitive map.

...I went up there this morning and found it and I was in the wrong place, there was a Southerly 16mph wind and very misty and loads of drizzle I launched SAS Venom on the South side and the lift was poor.

The North side might well be better but will have to wait for a better day, and as usual stunning view`s.

OS does show a small path which I presume must go to the ridge proper but the guy`s
you know can confirm this....bleak is not the word...lol

I was thinking of going there on Saturday evening - about 1700 onwards - then dropping off for a pub meal on the way back.
Cycling around to Instow and back in the morning................so I might not be fit for anything after that!  ;D

Had a couple of good flights with the Acacia at Wooly Mast after work today. DaveM had his Wild Thing attacked by a Peregrine Falcon..........darned thing wouldn't leave him alone, so he had to land. Soon effed off when I chucked the Acacia up though. Knew when it was beat, I reckon.  :nananana:

I am normally a South Cotswold sloper but am venturing down to glorious North devon next week, & am hoping to chuck something off Codden Hill which looks pretty good on your details.
I will make myself known to any of you guys who might turn up.

Happy soaring     Tim C.

Hi Tim,
Weather not looking too good at the moment.........but things can change in a week.  ???
The North side of Codden is better than the South.  ;)
The South works from S - SSW and needs a good 20mph on it to be really worthwhile.
The North works from NNW - NNE and is a bigger and steeper slope which will work in less wind speed.
Best to contact us on the Email below when you get down here. Slippery Sloper will almost certainly be up there if it's flyable. ;)

Cheers - DF

Woolacombe Down works well in a WNW.
It would be worthwhile having a trip up to Countisbury Common as well.
Failing that, there's always Mortehoe. ;)

My local slope!! The flap servo was not glued in very well (second hand plane) which gave way and made it spiral in!!

..After a very wet start, the rain & cloud`s disapeared and blue sky`s and sunshine lasted most of the morning and no other flyer`s were present, although I`m sure there must be other old fart flyer`s out there somewhere...but not at Woolacombe Down this morning
