Nick's Airtime 2017
#41


01/09/2017 - Seven Sisters

Arrived on launch at midday.  The wind seemed ok so I took off to test the air for Ben and Glyn who were not "current".  Conditions were a bit "choppy" at times and the cloud formations were a bit messy but I could soar along the full length of the site maintaining a good deal of height and did manage one climb to 3500' amsl.  I returned to the launch area after a 45 minute flight to report back on conditions and found it far from easy to get down(aah- wind picking up)!  I had hoped that the wind would settle down a bit as it backed from NNW to NW but it  quickly  increased to  well beyond my comfort zone :o .  We sat it out until 17:00 before throwing in the towel just as Dave Stein was arriving(thanks to Dave for the lift back down the hill). 


A bit of flying followed by a good dollop of "parawaiting".  It was quite comfy bedded down in the long grass but I was getting a bit cold as the sun lowered........ ;D
