Wind Direction: N - NE

Height: 50m (150ft) clay cliff rising to 100m (300ft)

Site Description

Paragliding at Cayton Bay has lower cliffs that are steep but not sheer, grass and mud covered.

The high cliffs are sheer and rocky, and take a more Northerly wind. Take offs are small from wild grass and it can be difficult to lay out a paraglider. The high cliff launch taking a Northerly is at 300ft.

The length of the site is approximately a mile and a quarter but this is only usable in a north-easterly.
