Cornwall anyone ?

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

I will be going down to Cornwall on Wednesday and staying thru the weekend 22nd to 26th May. The weather looks too windy ( great for Kitesurfing however ) until the weekend

The weekend is looking promising if anyone wants to join me. I will be in my camper with all the toys in the back. I normally stay at the Hale Beachside Holiday park and they let me fly off the bluff if they are not too busy or it is a quick walk down to the beach, but a bit of a slog getting back up. They have good cottages to rent quite cheaply in the off season and are a very nice family park for the wife and kids. Some kids are on half term so might be a bit busy

There are some stunning coastal flights to be done in this area.

Does anyone have Whitter,s phone number ? He flies down there and I have never got to fly with him yet.

I have thrown in some photos just to flavor the pot........In the middle of the second on is the Beachside Holiday park

Forecast is looking really good here for the weekend for flying. I have been down in Hayle staying at the Beachside hloiday park and every evening after a good kitesurfing session in sunshine the wind has droped enough to free fly the bluff along Gwithian beach. The bankholiday weekend- half term combination is going to turn the area into a Zoo tomorrow.

Gutted.. I left the SD card out of my camera. Beautiful flight along the coast around Perrenporth to St Ives. Saw a basking shark just outside the surf break on Gwithian beach and close to some surfers. Circled it for a bit... Would have made a good photo.

Going back to Cornwall again this weekend and staying an extra few days ( 22 to 25 june) . Sat &Sun are big wave kitesurfing conditions, and then Monday and Tuesday look good for flying the coast around Lands End . I had a great trip last time and the weather looks about the same this time. You can see some of the flying in a video I posted in the photo section. Crystal clear water and sunshine. Flew with Richard Whitmarsh one time and alone from the Hayle Beachside Holiday Park which has a bluff you can free fly above the beach at Gwithian . Come and join me..
