Too windy at the beacon

It was too windy for my paraglider at the Worcestershire Beacon today.
But anyway I took off just below the path, below, west of, where the cafe used to be.
I went backwards and up, so I got on the speed bar.
I was still going backwards and up.
I pulled in big ears, with speed bar on and weight shifted to the right to head for the gully.
I came down going backwards on the north edge of the hill.
I carried my wing to the front and down most of the way to the trees.
I flew down to the car mostly with speed bar and big ears on.
