There and back to see how far it was
Last weekend Mally, Marc, Tim and myself spent quite a bit of time on Signal hill
enjoying the AFC hospitality as the wind held a real westerly line all day.
Then it was a midweek session with Noel and the successful maiden of his EPP Spitfire
up at Signals over lunch and then a late Friday afternoon session on North Westers
up at Chappies with virtually the entire the Hout Bay crew(8 Souls in total)
and the resident Black Eagle thrown in for good measure,
who we are seeing quite often of late as the north westers
have pulled him to the Hout bay side of the peak in search of free lift and food.
Then a wee bit of Saturday sillyness at the Chappies car park slope
with the anti gravitational Sky Climbers while watching Brendan attempt
to dislodge the odd tourist from the said car park.
Then onto Sunday and over to Red Hill for near perfection
on a moderate to just brilliant South Easterly blow, joined by Jacque and
a few of the AFC crew and just about the full TOSS crew.
Brilliant conditions, a U2 maiden, a MB 339 endless flight, an Aldij with jammed surfaces
making for fun landings and as much combat that you could throw a stick at,
with mirth and humour levels at an all time high.
Not bad this trans peninsula stuff, and thanks to mother nature for once more delivering the goods.
Tim enjoys a late Signals session
Mally and Marc enjoy the last rays of the day
Our Black Eagle friend hands out some gliding lessons to a weasel on Friday evening
Effortless perfection as he disappeared at a rapid tare of knots
Jacque tunes in the MB339 for a session
Doesn’t get much prettier than this in terms of slope sites locally
Rock ‘n roll
The U2 gets a once over before it’s maiden which was flawless
Heading home towards a sunset of note. What a way to end the day!
