Hang Gliding at the Devils Dyke
An enjoyable flight in light winds at the Devil's Dyke. Still adjusting to the new harness, I'm over cautious and fly away from traffic (and the lift) and head to the bottom landing field. I almost completely fluff a bottom landing as I'm still struggling to get on the up-rights!
