Leaving Warburton

On the ground at Warburton there was a light south easterly, as I climbed out to my planned altitude tracking west for Leonora I watched my ground speed decay. I found that if I stayed low I could keep my ground speed above 100knots. This meant Kalgoorlie was now in range. I flew to Kalgoorlie never getting above 2000ft AGL and often around 1000ft to take advantage of the reduced headwinds.
