A fun day at Bossington

I’ve been flying for 21 years now and have never managed a trip to the North Somerset coastal sites, so after the recent club evening when Reech showed a video of Bossington, on Sunday 14th Feb Richard Danbury, Tom Mayne and I decided to give North Hill or Bossington a go. It was too light and off to the west at North Hill so we drove a bit further along the road to Bossington. There wasn’t much wind initially, but by about 2pm it was nicely soarable.

All in all it was a very pleasant day, and well worth the trip. We’ll hopefully be back in October or November on a day with cold northerlies to try to do a nice long coastal flight with the help of some sea thermals!

  1. That looks fantastic. Will have to add that to my ever increasing list of things to do.
