Bonne nuit

Conditions Optimales N NNE
Biggest and highest site on the island. The take off is on private land and is used by kind permission of the owner.

North to NNE winds, For such a large site it has a strangely narrow direction band after which it can be turbulent.

Take off is easy. Top-landing OK unless in higher winds as it is in a strong lift band. If it gets too strong land in a field behind the road. Bottom landing is tricky - a narrow stoney beach that disappears at high tide.

La pulente WNW

Conditions Optimales NW WNW
Small area for a WNW wind. Take off from a very low hillock to the north of an only slightly bigger hill which summits to a golf course (hence the name). Take-off can be a little tricky - you have to stick close to the hill.

On stronger days you can push out over the road and soar the sea wall all the way to Sands. Or head South over the road behind the pub for some height.

Large grassy area for bottom-landings.

Bouley Bay

Conditions Optimales E ENE NE
NE to East winds. 2nd biggest site on the island with a steep take off running down to the sea. 

Top landing is tight and tricky in high wind as it is in the lift band. You can land back at the car park but that can be a turbulent option.

No bottom-landing until you get to the stoney beach of Bouley Bay itself to the south which disappears at high tide.
