I am keen to fly across having read recent accounts but wonder why people choose not to cross at the narrowest point, ie from south of Lymington. I stayed at a campsite there last summer and the girl in the office said it would be ok to launch from there. Hurst View site is only about a mile from the spit of land to the south and airspace is 2000 ft above the campsite rising to 3500 ft at the narrowest gap - about a mile across.

Hi Nigel

1 main reason why we cross where we cross is because we take off from hambrook and our closest point is south sea round to stokes bay. we climb all the way. If you take of from your site you will be spending time going round in circles getting the hight to cross we normally fly to the IOW with a tail wind then use the sea brease to soar the cliffs and use as a tail wind on the way home.

If you wish to fly this with us your more than welcome too. But when we do it it's normally short notice due to the conditions needed to make it a great flight...
