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.

Best climb of the flight was right the middle of the Solent...most odd but gratefully received.
