Thursday looks better,more sw than nw,nw tends to blow towards the point creating lots of downdraughts and dead air.Tim and myself might be going on thursday

just got back from the Orme... flippin freezing.
1st couple of glides there wasn't alot of lift but conditions got better as the sun went down. last flight had pretty much perfect lift and made the end of day worth while. very nearly lost my cam though, fell off just as I was about to touch down..haha Very Happy
might have another blast tomorrow.
