A real treat! Taking off from 60 ft above sea level in just enough breeze to reach the higher cliffs with Richard Osbourne. We soared along to Bucks Mills but the beautiful cloud street forming was further west, so we pressed on almost to clovelly, where the prevailing wind was well off the cliff- almost parallel in fact. Somehow we were getting lift under the street and eventually climbed out-Richard in a good climb, me in a weak and watery one. With nothing to loose we went with it, and for me the first 20 or so km were a series of low saves chasing under Richard who was sitting pretty at cloudbase. I never quiet caught up although we were in site of each other until almost Exeter, where we went our separate ways- Richard crossed a big blue hole to reach a street leading to our declared goal of Teignmouth, I changed plan and headed for more reachable clouds towards Exeter. A series of good climbs took me there, and it was decision time- north or south of Exeter airspace. The wind and climbs took me south, so that's the way I headed. A cracking low save below pylon height got me back in the game and to Sidmouth with 2500 ft to spare and still climbing. I would love to have landed on the beach but it didn't seem wise with 15 km nw off shore wind up high, and a very light on shore on the beach there was going to be some wind shear somewhere! I opted for some fields on the east of the town, and by the time I packed up was greeted by local pilot DerekPposta who whisked me off for a beer and food before delivering me to the bus stop in time for a bus and train back home. The only thing missing from a perfect day was the lack of an offer to sleep with his au pair! Well made up with with 100km coast to coast.
