We were fortunate enough to get another 3 hrs of flying in before packing up on the Sunday morning once the drizle had stopped. Considering the appauling weather in the UK at the moment we were pretty lucky. Looking forward to the next one.

FANTASTIC weekend. The location was superb - easily the best flying site I have ever been to and a great campsite to boot (with a cafe which opens nice and early lol).................And the wind was to die for.

The mists were thick but lifted on the Saturday afternoon to reveal a stunning view and then we were bathed in blue sky and warmth. The mists were back though in the evening but by that stage we were bbq'ing whilst watching the acara appearing out of the mist :-)

I cannot recommend this location enough, great company and new tricks learnt- this will most definitely be having another calendar date in the near future. 8)
