Another good day at Pole Cottage yesterday. Some good flying then a shower. The locals and some of our party went home. The rest flew for another very pleasant hour and a half until another heavy shower. Went and packed our planes away in the van but then the rain stopped. Went back to the slope with just tx and venom. Planned to fly it really high and land back in car park. But wind had dropped to not much so just colined about for half an hour. Much sillier than Colin, pushed out much further and walked a long way down the hill.
Good day. Thanks everyone. Robert

      Hi Robert!
      Your map measures the distance from where we fly to the Welsh border as 9km, give or take a bit. It also shows that the height at this point is over 400m.
      http://www.ringbell.co.uk/info/hdist.htm calculates that at this height the horizon should be about 70km away.
      Never mind Wales! I recon we could see Ireland!

    Some of us don’t like getting wet… but the lift was good for most of us with the BFG making good altitude with just the full size gliders getting in the way.
