I'm heading down your way in a few weeks. Is it possible for me to fly at this site? If so, can you give the location?

Yes, it is open access. Google St Agnes head. Just turn up and look skyward, likely there will somebody flying is the weather is good.

Fortunately I was able to fly my lunak at Rhossili this week. The weather was kind, day 1 was lighter 15mph, lots of paras to avoid. The lunak flew well, gain height, perform aeros, gain height etc. Day 2, very light 4mph, meant I dare not risk it, day 3 the creamiest strongest lift 25 to 30mph, dropping to 22 in the evening. Here she came alive, covering the skies at great speed, aeros were huge continuous and flowing. The skies had clouded just enough to allow the light to be interesting and allow a fabulous Rhossili sunset to shimmer across the sea. Rhossili is a very special place.
