Sorry to join the debate late.. As Chris says, the two pilots should resolve the potential conflict before it is too late. If they are heading towards each other, the 'break right' rule means that they each have to tighten their turn and risk a spin.

Public Chat / Bonfire and Fireworks at the Gliding Club 2018
« Last post by DaveMartin1st on Thursday 16 November 2017: 19:07 »
I appreciate that this is a little early, however!

Sunday November 11th 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1.

Plans are being made for a thousands of beacons to be lit across the UK. Local parishes are joining national celebrations to mark this event and the gliding club hope to be involved by lighting a beacon on the south west corner of the airfield on what is one of the highest and most visible places in the area. With its easy access Camphill may be a focal point for some sort of ceremony. As you would expect full details of the arrangements are still being planned.

At present the gliding club anticipate that following whatever ceremony is arranged the normal fireworks will follow.

Paragliding was a seriously dangerous sport but knowledge and great design has made it much safer. Some say fool proof.

“A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.” Douglas Adams.

Public Chat / Lords seat / windy knoll

Pray tell , what possesses a pilot to land in Windy Knoll when the wind is Northerly and quite strong? , i saw one as i was driving past and apparently 2 did. regardless of lack of experience, not looking at site guides, not asking advice , surely basic knowledge should be enough to know flying and landing at the lee side of any structure (never mind somewhere as large as said spineback  ) will only lead to a bad ending , this time 2 got away with it.
