Hi Simon,

I feel a bit ashamed, never been at the Maasvlakte, should do that once. I live between Leiden and Haarlem, very close to the beach with dunes, but only flyable with NW winds. There is another issue, salt and sand aren't very good for electronics, so I have a special planes and transmitter for that use, don't dare to fly these big scale planes over there.
But I should try the Maasvlakte once with my salt & sand glider!

Nice area - Noordwijk and Katwijk beaches are lovely - I stayed at Katwijk on my last visit to ESA near you. You might be surprised by the dunes at Maaasvlakte - they are man-made, but big enough and with enough lift that they now that they attract many paragliders.

We used to fly at Langevelderslag, just a bit north of Noordwijk, but not often last years. Maybe we can have a go at the Maasvlakte, thanks for that suggestion!
