This was my first coastal soaring flight launching in some pretty high but smooth winds. This first flight lasted about 1.5 hours and I flew approximately 12 miles. 9 miles up the coast to the Highland Lighthouse. I turned around and was met with a potent head wind which forced me to eventually land after I was unable to cross a gap in the dunes 3 miles back towards the south. My landing wasn't the best costing me a downtube which I replaced with a spare before launching again a couple of hours later. Kermit and I flew to the Nauset Lighthouse 6 miles to the south of White Crest beach where we were launching from.
