Just back from holiday and the weather was perfect for flying. Sadly I put my back out and spent most of the holiday on my back, in pain, unable to even pick up my 15 month old son Sebastian! It was sad!

We were staying in a beautiful cottage just 2 miles from Fowey on the south coast. My brother Ben came down and flew along the coast a few times trying to tell me it was boring so I wouldn’t feel too green with envy! He lied! Check his blog for photos if you want to be green too!

The most exciting news is that we are gonna join the paramotor rally where pilots are flying around London over 2 days. If you want to join us please check out this link. The event is open to all competent XC pilots. Ben and I plan to give a lecture afterwards in aid of St Luke’s Cancer Center, showing film and photos from the flight. Venue and date TBC.

The start and finish points will be Homestead Farm, a small campsite near Guildford.

One of the aims of the circumnavigation is to raise money for St Luke’s Cancer Centre, just round the corner from the campsite.

The confirmed 264km route (which was finalised on 14th April) will be flown clockwise, with an overnight stay at Damyns Hall aerodrome where there will be an evening BBQ and full English breakfast.

There is no entry fee for the rally, but both Homestead Farm and Damyns Hall aerodrome will charge small fees for the use of their facilities.

Michel Carnet is organising the event.

Let’s hope for sunshine…
