The following photos were taken at Kimmeridge in Dorset, England, in October 2021.

Here, long time sail-maker Roly is on Gary D’s front wires. The mountain-biker in the blue helmet is Arthur from the USA, who has flown paramotors in Utah and was at this time studying at Bournemouth University, just a few miles from Kimmeridge.

We finished the day with fish and chips in Swanage, passing a red sunset lit Corfe Castle on the way.
