My 1st beach landing!

Usually on a big day I am divided between going south sites and going to Peaks.

This big day wasn't different! Telegram got busy from early hours (6am). Dima offered lift to peaks from 8am (but I could not make my decision early enough)

I worked late shift till 1am and the morning tiredness actually helped me to chose Peaks over Milk Hill for the day (3h drive one way vs 1 hour 15 minutes)

A couple more hours in bed and I was ready to drive!

On the way out I checked Bradwell-live-meteo, but it was showing strong winds as for Peaks, 19-24mph and loads of west in the direction all morning long. Regardless, I was on my way to Eyam to check real conditions.

It turned up to be very good. I did not wait long. From the air I texted my boss at work to book the day off. Then I texted my boss at home- not to wait with dinner. Both confirmed within minutes! I felt straight away it will be one of THE special days! Beach landing is in my head for real at this point!

Not getting too excited slowly worked out my on-the-hill altitude trying to get under nicest clouds, waiting patiently for a proper, vertical thermal to get me high.

1st gaggle went off about 30 minutes before me. That's fine!

All worked well, I cached up with Dima over Sheffield- where he decided to venture his own way and unfortunately landed soon after. All the way on my own from Sheffield then.

As soon as I got close to Selby-Goole area everything downwind got dark. Just overcast.

I went into careful flying mode- I do not want to land early in the day again! Not today! Waited high by the cloud base in several places to survive the mid-day shades.

Turned out I waited enough as when all my altitude gone critical levels… The Sun came out and I found a good climb near Driffield.

From there I cruised comfortably to another cloud and then Scarborough.

WOW!

In the morning I did check tides and also shared my xcTrack flight plan with Grzegorz and Dima.

I had loads of messages on the way to goal. Being high chatted to few friends who also confirmed "reported wind" in my goal being no more than 9mph…

Also, great company on the way back to the hills! Happy days!

Since its my 1st beach landing, I also made public my youtube memories from the day.
