South Downs

I had an excellent day on the South Downs on Friday 31st.
Great runs along the ridge with fantastic views of the Downs and South Coast.
Mike is hoping to take the Duo down to Parham again for ridge running when the weather is suitable: another unique flying opportunity for Booker members whatever their experience level. The best wind direction is between slightly west of North to Northeast; with speeds over 15 to 20kts.
A number of Booker members have driven to Parham to fly for the day. It is well worth the drive to experience 100km of ridge. Apart from getting there and back having an engine is no advantage as by the time you realise you need it you are too low to start it.
I unfortunately forgot to take my camera so the pictures are from last year; much the same apart from missing the beautiful Autumn colours.
