Tunbridge Tier

The site works well in light thermic conditions with thermals starting to rise by 11:00 and really pumping by 13:00 (summertime). If the inversion is below 1300m then the flying can be quite frustrating with the edge of the tiers acting as a frustrating, scary place to play, leading you into a hunt across the flatlands for thermals.

Flight

Thermic flying only. Beware of winds crossing this site up. Fully assess all the telltales strewn around the site and ensure that the air you are going to depart in is reasonably square up the face. Because of the topography of the Island this happens more than you would think.

The camp site at interlaken is a great place to spend the night prior to flying.
