What a lovely day! First flight since September and also the last due to coronavirus…

Arrived at 12:30 and found Paul N. Setting up. Wind picking up at 12-19mph SW. Paul took off ok and I took a while to reconnect wing after reserve repack and get used to instruments again. By the time I took off just before 1pm, the wind had eased off to 11-16mph SW for an easy takeoff. Easy crossing to Thorncombe Beacon but Paul was long gone to Charmouth on his Cure!

Since it was high tide I didn't fancy trying Golden Cap although the wind strength and direction were probably ok. Didn't want to spoil my first outing in a long while…

Instead, I enjoyed boating around TB and Doghouse in the glorious sun. After 1/2 hr, Paul came back and returned to TO. But by then Tomasz had arrived we enjoyed the space together. After while the wind seemed to be picking up a bit and slightly more west but I achieved 1010 ft amsl before retreating to Eype. Plenty of lift there but made a good TL and called it a day. Meanwhile, Richard F and Simon R had arrived and Simon took off. Wind went a bit south and made it tricky for Richard who stayed on the ground. Paul had another flight but the wind was gradually increasing and seemed a bit "not normal". At which point Tony F arrived, too late for any action. Paul landed and Simon enjoyed the fantastic lift for a while longer before going down on the beach since the wind was, by now, 20+

Happy memories for the next 3 months of confinement…
