Day 5 in learning to hang glide

Today the wind did not play ball. It was strong and westerly for the most part and by late afternoon when the wind did turn up the slope it lost all its strength. Tracey and I sat under the glider talking hang gliding while enjoying the awesome views along the garden route coast. It really is a spectacular spot to learn this sport. Later we drove up to my powered hang gliding runway and it struck us both that this is the most beautiful place in the whole of South Africa – mountains, lakes and the ocean – the only place in the country where you find such a combination. And we live here.

Hhmmm… Awesome! You guys should come get some of this - as a fellow pilot said, hang gliding is not a sport, it is an art!

Tomorrow looks like it is going to be a peachy. And after the long theory day we can’t wait.

Wish you were here!


PS: Try this You tube video link for one of her flights.

Let me know if it works. :)
