Back again

IMGP0641, originally uploaded by hangflyer.

The next day there were no clouds in the usual places and perhaps because there were more pilots and more pressure we made the mistake of lobbing off to early. Jas and I both found ourselves in the bombout down below. Its a tight little field with every imaginable hazard on all sides, roads, buildings, a railway, high tension power lines, paraglider pilots.... With the Perfex its easy, pull the bar in to waste energy so I had no trouble. Jas had to flare hard to stop his glider in the limited space. The whole time Jas flew his huge topless aeros like a champ and made every one of his basebar landings look easy. Go Jas!
