Report by Roy Menage
The forecast looked promising so, hearing that the sun was out in Swanage, I hot-footed down to Portland West. It was very light on takeoff but after a few attempts, I managed to get off with guidance from Gary Pocock and Russell. The air was nicely buoyant and Russell and Gary wasted no time in joining me. Height gains were quite good initially but then the lift turned off quite quickly. Russell top landed but neither Gary nor I were able to get quite enough height to get in safely. After several attempts, I decided to cut my losses and land on the promenade. Russell very kindly retrieved us. I was very glad to have flown there for the first time.
Not bad for a Sunday afternoon in January! Thanks to Russell for the photos of me. Photos of Gary, Russell and cliffs by me
