March 2024

February seems to have been a bit short on flying days, so grab it while you can. Saturday 10th eventually provided a very pleasant afternoon and glorious evening after the mist cleared. Blencathra's ridge worked reasonably well for an hour or so in a light SE breeze. The photograph is of Phil Kew flying his Supair Savage with Hall's Fell Ridge in the background, and beyond Clough Head and High Street. Pic by Malc Grout

October 2023

Sunday 1st October was forecast to be a windy WSW day but easing later in the afternoon.  The tide would also be out by then and it looked like St Bee's would give an opportunity for some late afternoon soaring in the sunshine. Photograph shows Malc Grout flying his Gin Evora with St Bee's Head in the background.   Taken by Dave Eva.

August 2023

This year provided soarable conditions for the Grassmere Sports Accuracy Competition on Sunday 27th August, so long as one did not mind flying in light drizzle in the morning, and then brighter but breezier conditions in the afternoon.  A number of pilots posted very good  scores with one DC.  Later on conditions became more challenging with the increasing breeze, and pilots tending to land short.  The picture shows Paul Clarke flying an Ozone Swift making a second launch in the afternoon.  Very useful for getting the glider dry.

July 2023

Thursday 13th July was a decent forecast in an otherwise rather windy and showery week.  Light to moderate SW forecast to increase in the afternoon.  The morning provided a good paragliding wind on the St Bee's dunes with an easy run down to the Sellafield airspace boundary and return.  As forecast it picked up and Shaun McGuirk had wisely brought his hang glider as well as a paraglider.  It is not often we see hang gliders on our sites these days, so giving Shaun a wire off was a pleasure. Pilot Shaun McGuirk flying an Icaro Relax.  Photo Malc Grout.
