Question please...

Does anyone know how many passes she did at Beachy head? Not sure if that vid is the full monty or is looped.

I thought the same initially Pam. Andy (sickbag) was there, he should have the answer although having watched it again the passes do seem slightly different (could just be me though, my heads a shed recently).
