I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

I lost my Vector this afternoon on the Orme Jem was flying his Wildthing when we very suddenly enveloped in low cloud/sea mist and I completely lost sight of the Vector I yelled a couple of times to Jem thinking two pair of eyes are better than one but obviously he was busy with his model, he landed quickly and in the meantime I was busy looking around for the Vector, just as Jem landed after what seemed like a lifetime we both spotted the Vector falling in a spin just in front of the slope. I quickly regained control and whipped it round into a landing circuit with Jem yelling "nail it first time don't go round again", thankfully I did and all ended well What a Face Definitely not an experience I wish to repeat in this lifetime, hell I was lucky, took ages to regain a reasonable heart rate pale

Welcome to the wonderful world of sloping & the Great Orme, has it's own climate so it has, a proper moment was it, I bet the thumbs still wobbly.
