The exceedingly pleasant Francisco Grande Hang Gliding resort, (well it is this week anyway). Former San Francisco Giants (baseball - a bit like cricket, but with a schedule) winter training facility ;)The last couple of days have seen some very nice racing conditions, here we are jockeying for position in the start circle.
Conditions on course vary radically depending on the terrain you are over. I have found it very challenging to read. This part of the course was good.
This part of the course, not so good and while I thought I would climb out of here...
I didn't and landed in a lonely spot.
With a tricky retrieve, I was very grateful to Jamie and Jon Sr for helping me out of the sweat pit I landed in.And just when you think hmm well the cliffs aren't *that* high, you look down to see what you have been walking on !
Landing at goal is by far the way to go :) Green grass, the pool and margarita, high spirits :)
