Well we reckoned that 2011 wasn't a good year but 2012 hasn't been any better! Flying in December has been very limited; Al Westle and a group managed a flydown off Skiddaw on 2 December. Here Jan Little prepares to launch; photo by Al Westle

December 2012

It's been a wet month everywhere and Cumbria hasn't missed out. If you did fly, trying to find somewhere dry afterwards to pack your wing has been a challenge! At the end of the month, a clear cold spell settled in with some spectacular views if you could get out of work. On 29 November, Steve Kitchen and Ward Fallowfield prepared to fly their speed wings from Raise. The view looks NE to Ullswater. Picture by Vicky Blanco

Sunday 26 August was Grasmere Sports and CSC was there. The weather wasn't brilliant but everyone managed to fly even though you got some good skids in the landing area! Here is Andy Paulson on finals in the classic Grasmere setting.

August 2012

The summer of 2012 continues with lots of showers and days of strong winds. Flying days have to be snatched when they appear. On 21 July, Dave Robinson and "Gypsy" James flew from Heron Pike (Grasmere) and Dave took this picture looking NNE. Heron Pike is just off the bottom of the picture but the view is dominated by the Fairfield Horseshoe. In the distance is the Vale of Eden and the Pennines

July 2012

We did have one or 2 epic days in June even though it's a bit difficult to remember them now! The bank holiday on Monday 4 June was the best. This months photo was taken from the NE ridge of Wetherlam. Pike of Blisco is to the left, with Bowfell behind and to the left of that. The Langdale Pikes are on the right.

June 2012

We need your photos! John Hamlett and Ian Henderson sweated to the top of Whitestones on a hot 21 May evening. The sea breeze was turning the windmills at J36 but it failed to reach Whitestones in any strength. Ian takes off only to get an extended flydown. Photo by John Hamlett

May 2012

And off we go! The site is Burnbank looking down to the Loweswater valley and this was the first coaching day of the season. Conditions were variable but improved as the day progressed

The Wainwrights comp reaches the sites that other beers don't! After a rubbish start to the month, spring suddenly appeared in the second half of the month and the 2012 flying season started. Here your webmaster launches off Stony Cove Pike in a vain attempt to get above takeoff. Thornthwaite Crag at the southern end of the High St plateau is in the background. Photo by Heather Stevenson
