Thermals on the north coast of Devon – 74 km (Cornwall)
Thermal on the coast: seaside flights as we would like to see more often!
On November 23, 2014, Tim Pentraeh from Bath (adjacent to Bristol) flies to a site on the north coast of Devon (Cornwall) starting from a takeoff near Combe Martin (292 m). Returning to the top of the take-off, a little way back from the coast, he met small thermals allowing him to make a small flight in land.
On November 23, Tim Pentraeh posted the teaser video of his 74-km flight. Since then, he has made the full video of his flight.
“I know we’re currently in the depths of winter and the first spring thermals seem but a distant dream, but we’ve now passed the low point and things are only going to get better! And just in case you need some more cheering up, here’s a short video of a wonderful flight I had with some good friends a month ago in North Devon. The day started cold and grey, but the wind was perfect, and after a couple of hours soaring high above the spectacular coast the front passed through and the sun came out and it just got better and better! To round the day off, once we’d all retrieved ourselves from all over North Devon, we had a fine pint and meal in a lovely country pub… Happy days indeed!”
