It has been ages since I last flew at Serpo. The weather was no good for Bakewell this weekend (after a great run the last couple of months) but it looked OK, if a little strong for Serpo. I rang the owners to confirm there were no easily frightened animals in the landing paddock and got the OK to fly there on Sunday.
Sure enough the winds were W to SW at between 15 and 25 knots. It was a little lively for the fun at times, and I was very careful not to go anywhere I was not absolutely sure I would get back from. I had a fun fly and that is what it is all about. I had performance envy as the boys on the Stings could actually explore the ridge.
I am reminded to replace the bungies on the fun, I'm sure there would be another 5 knots of penetration if I could stop the sail flapping so badly. I miss my climax.

Considering the ridiculously small amount of effort I put into this panorama it is amazing.

And here I am getting thrown around in the Fun...
