SZ2492 : Paragliding at Barton on Sea

Paragliding at Barton on Sea
Paragliding at Barton on Sea
Three paragliders ridge-soar on the steady wind that blows off the sea at Barton on Sea. These paragliders will make top landings and, as long as the wind stays, can stay up soaring the cliff for some time. A popular spot for them as there is a car park nearby and the cliff and wind direction usually provide excellent conditions. Hurst Point lighthouse can be seen in the distance (right).
