Time Lapse vids from the hill

I spent the last three days at the washout known as the British Open Series 3 where one day out of five was flyable. This was yesterday from a hill called Camlo which is a “little flown hill, especially for hang gliders, as there is not a suitable bottom landing field”
Numpty here took off first with everyone watching and waiting because there were no clouds, and I got thrown about a bit. Luckily there were no other gliders in the air to dodge.
Then I came in and landed when things got full up like a zoo (orange glider on the 39th second of the vid).
Then I un-redeemed myself by sitting on takeoff for most of the next video until the launch window was about to close.
Most of the big boys got away during that time until I was one of just two gliders left in the air. I went in and landed just as the other one got away to a big cloud. Grumble.
Once you’ve tasted XC flying, nothing is ever good enough again.
