Had a couple of excellent sessions at Maes Knoll, east Dundry this week .........All a bit hit and miss on timings at the moment, I'll try and find a way to alert folk - perhaps via this thread to start with so do subscribe.
Looking good for MaesKnoll tomoz...
.... Guess there was barely any wind at all yesterday.
.....Anyhow, how does thursday look for combat? There is a call out for a fight.
That looks like the one from the Sloperacer blog. What colour is your Sunbird?
Would North Nibley be easier to access from work? I think this is our last week of post-work flying before the clocks change and we'll need lights.
I live in Marlborough and consider it Wessex rather than West country.I fly Knapp Hill , Milk Hill, South and South west/west. Pewsey Vale white horse good for a Northwest.Liddington Hill near Chiseldon good for North and West.Just east of Shalbourne Berks there is the best North and South ridge short of going to the coast.!There are some other little Nirvana's as well but they are too difficult to access if you arrrnt local.I would say see you there but Ive never seen anyone other than me on all of the above.
Calling all Brizzle DLG owners: on an day like today get yourselves over to the SeaWalls on the downs... epic lift (slope & thermal) over the gorge until the sun dipped below the horizon
At the risk of being boring - ditto the above╚ Even though the air temp was only 2 - 3oC the sun was heating the cliffs & producing excellent thermals (plus the slope lift from the light wind). Lift was still good even when the wind decided to blow offshore(ish). The Cotswold lads were doing the same at Froscester with their Alulas & Blasters - where are all the Brizzle lightweights...
Good to hear you've bust it already!
...it looks to go really well even in light winds
Are you around saturday for some Sea Walls action?
Are you around saturday Sunday for some Sea Walls action?
I might see if I can nip up at about 12 ish....
Just got back from Maes Knoll, fairly blustery but good fun. I only took my Moth which hasn't got a ballast tube,
...and it struck me that now they've chopped the bushes down it could make a very decent DS spot.
