the links below are site locations and landing fields, that may be used in this weekends competition.  I am hoping that most people will be able to drop them into navigation aids to help you get to the right location.

Marske on Sea https://goo.gl/maps/y9AFC1gCKDu
Marske on sea is a flat field at the south end of the village launch is from 20 foot dunes at the south corner closest to the grave yard. further south the cliffs rise to I think 300 foot, and a run to Saltburn is easily done. With the possibility of a ridge run out and return to whitby tide times Mean that flying is only possible/sensible from 5 am to 12 mid day and 5,pm till dusk,

Dodd Fell East Bottom landing field https://goo.gl/maps/6AXijo7jC4B2
Mr Chapman has asked us to use this field for the duration of the competition. its higher than the one people landed in a couple of years ago but on the other side of the road and with a gate onto the road. I HAVE NOT CHECKED IT,  I am assured there are no power lines across it but obviously there are Hazards.  its upslope IF you land into wind,  There's a TREE in it, just one! but thats got to be enough for someone, dry stone walls and road on approach,  dry stone walls all around the field, Overshoot has powerlines I think,  Its also closer to wether fell so it will be checked for ROTOR  on Friday morning and  I hope will have a windsock put in it.

Access to Dodd Fell North West and East faces. https://goo.gl/maps/UFzMH3TYMmF2    turn off the main road and close all gates behind you.
West Cam Road and Pennine Way. https://goo.gl/maps/UFzMH3TYMmF2 turn off here and park, keeping the path clear any further and you must have a 4x4,  Possible to fly this site in a northerly but very shallow and the trip to Model Ridge is worth it.

Dodd Fell East Face Launch https://goo.gl/maps/8Fm8vAmKTWk  Accessed by 4x4 only vehicles to be parked off the track,  access may be possible from both directions.

Semer water ESE and potentially Northerly  https://goo.gl/maps/Z4Uah4kUyqy  Unload on the crest of the hill and park safely keeping the road clear.

Wether fell access track Known as Cam High Road  https://goo.gl/maps/8Fm8vAmKTWk.  follow this track till you see a stone wall on both sides theres a gate in the one on the left, park on the left side looking up the track the track is very busy and must be kept clear for a large tractor to get through,

Model Ridge and Cringle Bowl. https://goo.gl/maps/AaGrhzxySzH2  Access is through Lord Stones Cafe, please enjoy their hospitality even if its a cup of tea. This is a sensitive site and we have been given permission to fly it, Currently bottom landing is under negotiation. so confident soaring only
