61 H 29 Sep 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Very windy to start with. Air lumpy. Self launched, scratched. Flew the spur in front of the pub with an Airborne Fun. A Paraglider joined in the fun. As usual, dropped off and ended up bottom landing. The Airborne Fun also joined me at the bottom. 00:15 242 ft
62 H 16 Oct 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Wave like wind. Strong then weak. 01:05 216 ft
63 H 12 Nov 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke (Video) very busy with paragliders, hard to stay up, had to do emergency manoeuvres to avoid a paraglider. Bottom landed. 00:13 39 ft
64 H 12 Nov 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Almost same as previous flight, good bottom landing, but busy with paragliders. 00:12 36 ft
65 H 6 Dec 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Took off from paddock. Soared main ridge, crossed Pylons topping height up when I could. Almost got to Truleigh, but decided not because there were many paragliders at that end. Came back to the Dyke, belly top-landed in a cowpat. 00:35 108 ft
66 H 6 Dec 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Took off from the bowl (where I landed previously). Conditions dropped off more, ended up bottom landing (Flared too early, landed heavily bending my first upright slightly). Home for a new one. 00:22 98 ft
67 H 9 Dec 2008 / 00:00 Target 16 Devil's Dyke Arrived and no-one else there. Walked to Truleigh and watched a kestrel. Came back to launch to see Nick. Cloud was low, felt very strong. Nick launched, then shortly later I did. It was very rough, so I stayed away from the hill. Ended up bottom landing and am please to report that landing was perfect (no bent aluminium this time). 00:09
