Yesterday I managed to get myself invited to the Naval Gliding Centre at Lee-on-Solent.
The airfield is, you might say, right on the coast.
Had a very pleasant flight in one of their K-21s (N7) with a couple of great climbs to cloudbase at 5000'. As I have never flown over water and the Isle of Wight is only about 4 miles away I decided on a little excursion across the water, turning both Cowes and Ryde before routing back over Portsmouth and back to the airfield. Feels most odd to be over water.
A fun day out.
Only had my phone camera with me so please excuse the image quality.

A few images from the other weekend when I managed to get myself comprehensively VMC on top in one of the clubs K-21's. Crystal clear visibility and a low sun gave some stunning cloudscapes to look at.
