Flight Logs

Where and when we've been flying

Forecasts have been a bit all over the place recently and difficult to predict the good days. Funny though, I always think a good day may turn out less good, but never consider the reverse that a bad day might be much less bad and even good.Yesterday at Singlie we got the latter, and were rewarded with over an hour of surprisingly lifty conditions that let us have a right good explore of this new (for us) site.

A plan was hatched to do this ridge run the night before. Forecast suggested a fairly strong wind and I was taken aback at the amount of wind blowing up the valley at 8.30 am to the point of holding back for a while.

Arrived at Witchy around 3 pm to find Chris and Fred, Fred was packing up as he had an appointment, I could tell he was not fully commited to leaving but he had been flying.

Starts out with a bit off chat on our group and a derision is made to meet up at 1pm, but I decide to sneak round 30 min earlier to check out another way up the hill. I want to walk up the south shoulder to see if its easier, it is and being open to the main valley, a good breeze is to be observed even low down on the face.

I'm sure Jamie started this one with a message earlier in the week that it would be flyable on Sunday but he would be on 'family duties'.  Late night messages on Saturday saw Rob and me meeting a Mountbenger on Sunday morning.  Forecasts suggested an early start would be good since it was unstable but flying would be possible....Dungavel was just too far to travel!!.
