THE 1st PMC COAST RUN! 

Situated just 7-Miles from one coast and 16-miles from another coast, with Exmoor and Dartmoor both well within cross country distance, this venue may well just be the best flying site the PMC has had an event at, and one not to be missed.

There will be fresh local pasties of varying sort (of course) And the normal food van type food.

As always, we will have a heated beer tent (bar provided by PMC again)

The fire pit will be lit 24-hours a day.

The music will be played at a social volume at social times of the day. 

Dogs are welcome, children are welcome.

There is literally nothing bad to be said about this place! The above view lives only 7.3 miles away from take off! 

The view below is 20.8 miles away from take off!

I will add more information and spice this page up a little over the coming week or so, but I just wanted to get the dates out there soon :-)

It might be a long way to travel for some; But it will likely be the best flying you have ever done, in a spectacular location and well worth the journey.

It wasn’t a complete washout. Well.. ok maybe it was 😂

we were staying until Monday but our van was playing up and made us almost immobile which wasn’t so good in the downpour so we called it this morning. 

Giles flew twice which was good to see. Far too windy for me though. 

Good evening around the fire on Friday. Had a 7.5 miles walk yesterday because the van wouldn’t work then the downpour from 3pm all through the night finished it for us. The van worked this morning. We were last to leave the field and had a day in Looe (we decided we want to live there) followed by a picnic on Bodmin moor and just got home. Still managed to make a nice weekend of it😁

Having seen some scenery today I really hope there’s an opportunity for a fly-in there next year.

    • It's early for me, 10.30 am on a Saturday morning, and I'm only just starting to 'get it together' after  a 'Dutch'  super-coffee & my handful of medz. 6 hrs sleep, for once, feels like a 12-hr lie-in right now. ... and my very 1st post here, I *had* planned to make that my intro thread (I'm NO fora rookie!) but that will have to wait until later in the weekend. (I'm a sports-junkie so weekends tend to be long & late - this weekend it's soccer, rugby(England v Waless), F1GP  - #GoLewis , boxing, NCAA (college) american football & NFL from 6 pm Sunday to 4 am Monday morning.) But instead I find myself moved by this amazing challenge (esp at this time of year ) Yes, I'll be making a donation to this super-worthy cause - but it will be next Friday, when my next PIP payment hits the bank. £30 to get started, more to come later. I'll also start posting about it on my social media feeds. I haven't worked out the timings yet, but on first glance it looks like I *might* be able to witness the flight for myself, either down the Cumbrian coast or the north seas coast on the eastern leg. Have to check the map better later for dates. Hmm, think I'd best upgrade my membership here too, and soon. My very best to the challenge team, and to every member who is backing this AMAZEBALLS adventure 👏 Time to give my wee support woofit his morning 'walk' now - only after you've met him (Merlin the Min-Pin, named after the engine NOT the wizard) can it be understood why it's funny so to apostrophise the word walk    
    • Hi, Yes, agreed. Really interested to see how it goes with an electric paramotor I’ve donated and look forward to following the journey 🙂
    • Awesome guys!! I honestly think this is a worthy adventure and also something in the UK which involves a Paramotor and is super positive and most likely to be the single largest exposure of our sport / toys to the UK general public since the Bear Grylls Everest thing which was not a happy vibe expedition / edit.  Keeping this positive and showing our support as a community is I think a humble offering in return for the all round good I think it will be doing  Again, thanks guys..  SW  
    • Great adventure and a great cause. Donated too.👊
    • Thanks guys. Engine failed due to extra thick winter clothing and neck warmer pushing into the electrics just behind my head and wire coming off switch. New AC machines have the switch at the side - I guess I now know why. I couldn't move initially as completely winded. I couldn't even talk to a helpful passer-by. He put everything away for me and I was taken off in an ambulance. Very lucky and I got off with just torn muscles between the ribs in my back. It feels just like broken ribs.   My paramotor frame now has a healthy leaning back angle. It hit the floor so hard the motor bent the top part of the frame down so the thrust is now a little more downward. Rather weirdly, this will help me as I can't stand up straight at launch!
