September 2014

August sees us at the annual Grasmere Show event. We have a light hearted accuracy competition in the field next to the showground but the aim is to fly for as long as possible and then try to land accurately. After a slow start, conditions dramatically improved with most pilots commeting on the buoyancy over the landing area. Pete Askew took this photo of a pilot striving to hit the landing spot

With grateful thanks to Ed Cleasby for rescuing this month's PoM; we need your photos! It's the 2014 LCC and the Saturday A comp task was Buttermere Moss to Grasmere. Here Ed climbs up in a thermal over take off. The photo looks north east to Derwent Water and Skiddaw in the background.

Jenkin Coaching day Saturday 3rd May. "It was a dull day with light winds, but despite that 10 members came to Coaching and had a good day. Plenty of ground handling, some soaring and everyone got flying and had a sociable time on the hill. The wow factor for new member Gordon Coulthard was a first post CP flight with spectacular views of Derwentwater. photo Mike Harper

May 2014

Spring has sprung and the flying season has started. Here Al Westle took this photo on an early March day over Ennerdale. Ennerdale Water is below and Skiddaw is on the horizon just to the left of the risers. Al says "This one was Mark Lennon (Atlas) and Stuart Thompson (Sprint Evo). We had planned to pass Pillar on our way to Wastwater but the direction was far too much North to do anything but boat about on Grike."

No pictures received this month so its back to 13 March 2013 and Lord's Seat in the NW Lakes. Ed Cleasby "enjoyed the first decent (and thermic) day of the year". Bassenthwaite is in the foreground with the Skiddaw Massif behind. The Helvellyn ridge is background right

March 2014

This winter has been the worst since your webmaster took up paragliding. For a lot of us, the last flight is a distant memory. No photos have been received this month so its back to 2010 when Pete Rycroft and others walked up Grisedale Pike for a flydown on a nice day. Here Tom Thompson takes off and sets off down the ridge to land on the far side of Braithwaite

Brian Doub and other pilots got their first flight at Lowca (on the west coast) on Saturday 11 January. Brian says that although the wind got quite strong the air was very smooth.

January 2014

No submissions for this months picture - December 2013 seemed to be nothing but wind and rain. This months picture was taken at the top of Clough Head in 2008. It was a superb day for the view but the flying was a cold trip downwards
