Beer Head, again. The week before had been too light. Today I got off in a lull and was pinned, fumbling for full speed bar in order to inch forward. Off towards Sidmouth keeping out to sea to avoid the orographic cloud. The return was quick. The plan was to jump across to the cliffs at Seaton, a 3.5km glide across the sea, and I had been working out all week that I needed 1000' amsl to be 'ok', but it still looked a long way and the cliffs there were still in cloud! Another beat along the cliffs allowed me to top up, and then I was off. The glide was easy and the cliffs you go to are steep and work well. The next part of the coast was potentially going to be tricky, especially as it really needs a S or SSE. Flying to Lyme Regis was a 65km/hr downwind glide, and soon I was whizzing over the town, and could eek out some lift on the cliffs past Lyme. From here it was familiar terrain, Golden Cap, and then over Thorncombe Beacon to Eype. Should I go across West Bay to Burton Bradstock or not - this can be tricky if the wind isn't strong and perfectly on the cliffs, and the wind was dropping, and I'd failed to do that return crossing on a number of occasions in the past. I got to The Hive Beach and just squeaked back across West Bay. By the time I got back to Golden Cap the wind was light, and I landed on the beach. I packed and walked out towards Lyme. There were lots of kids looking for fossils, just as I used to do on that beach as a kid. One lad came over to me and asked me for some advice on how to find fossils. I said they were everywhere and told him I had already filled my rucksack with them - he said "wow, that pack must be heavy". I smiled.
