South Cotswold Soaring Association


Cam Long Down
Cam Long Down: A nice North facing ridge,  only spoilt by poor landing choices, the area in front is clear  and gives super smooth lift, it takes 13 minutes to walk up slowly climbing 300 feet

:  we lost a dozen good men trying to find the place, you are on your own. Satnav GL11 5HH is very near the car park

Parking: where the 'P' is, then head up, the slope is to the left of the hill in front of you, keep climbing till you reach the long ridge, this is on the Cotswold way

Landing: not the worst place in the world, but pretty close, try to skid along the front of the slope and hit something soft. The rotor is bad on the top

Dynamic Soaring: best in a SSW wind, there are less trees on the north side
Landing Out:
If you do land out look for Bill and Fred, lost several months ago in the deep undergrowth 

Para Gliders: A nice place but the trees cause problems, not used lately
