Sites West of Sheffield
« on: June 04, 2011, 14:06:36 PM »
I'll be staying in Rivelin Valley just west of Sheffield for a week at the end of June, will be sneaking my Mini Blade and Alula with me to cover all weathers. Any recommended slopes in that area and what wind direction/speed do they work in.

Thanks

Hi Frank  ...

Altho' I now live in Cornwall I spent many years flying around the Sheffield area.

Hi Frank,

I'm an SSA and I don't live far from Rivellin myself.
If you look on the main glider board you'll see Callow Bank mentioned, our main club site and I believe you can fly as a guest if you've got BMFA insurance, SteveBB will be able to tell you if you contact him.
Callow has a South slope and a West slope, might work a bit either side of W but I don't get up there that much as I fly some smaller but useable slopes very close to where I live (not club slopes) and I can fly from NW to SW over a choice of three.
PM me with your details and I should be able to help you out.
I fly an Alula from one of the slopes and more fragile models from the others so your choice of gliders should fit the bill nicely.

Cheers,

Stan
