First day at new tow site, n molton ridge. Aim of the day was lots of tows as atraining exercise for us all, hoping to get slicker and quicker. Tow limited to 60 metres as tow permit still awited. On my 3rd tow blundered straight into a climb so it seemed rude not to use it! Slow climb out and took a while to get properly established. Windier up high than on the tow field, so would have made a triangle difficult. RASP had shown a strong convergence line parallel to the north coast and i wanted to try and reach and fly this, as it is likely to be a key ingredient in future triangles from this site. Eventually approached it, only to find it was way below me, an in fact slightly below hilltop height, just to the north side of a ridge(so effectively just in the lee of the ridge in the south easterly breeze- although exmoor ridges are so wide that i wasnt too worried about rotor)I debated wether to try cross winding to stay in the better air, but the next cloud was a long way off, and probably not reachable, so thought i would investigate the sea breeze front- which was like a dramatic wall of orographic cloud. Managed to soar up and down it for a couple of beats, so it was definately working, but its max height was only a 100 ft or so above the territory. Interesting to do, but wasn't gonna get me anywhere, so down to land, a long walk to road and slow hitch most of the way back to the tow field before chris b kindly picked me up. And drove me back for celebratory bbq. Happy to have demonstrated to myself some of the site potential. Thanks to all involved.
