A short summary of the clubs visit to the Lleyn Peninsular North Wales. After a long (in time not miles) journey I arrived at the campsite on Saturday afternoon and pitched camp, Martin and Robert also travelled on the same day but they had rented a cottage for the week, and after a stormy night […]
The weekend started on Friday for most that were there, as I was one of the campers the first thing to do was set up camp. Once done we headed for the Great Orme where we met up with Robert and several other model flyers who were also there for the weekend, hailing from […]

The slope is listed on the Slope Soarer guide as usable with a north to north-westerly wind, which as it happened was the wind direction […]
