I had an awesome fly at Bakewell yesterday. It was quite a day with the
race in the morning followed by a long soaring flight and then the climb
back up the hill to get my car.

My First Race

Getting up at dawn to go run 10k as fast as I can. I never saw that one coming last year. Life is full of surprises.

The distance was actually 10.5Km which equates to 47 min for 10Km.

I'm doing a 10km race in Perth on Monday just for fun, I regularly do
10km training runs so it will be interesting to see what effect if any
it has on my pace...

We have also booked another event in Switzerland, this one is a 1600M
height gain in 10km running event, or probably a walking event for me I

I got a couple of flights at Cott last week. Neither day was particularly special, but a sign of better days to come. On Thursday a bunch of guys turned up and there was some excellent flying at times. The photos are from Tuesday when I was testing the HD recording feature of the Pentax Optio W80, these are screen shots.

Does anyone else think that Gerolf looks a bit too serious in this photo, I mean using a drogue chute to land a single surface glider on a beach? (Come on Moyes the performance is not that good!)

I had a short and exciting little fly this afternoon. It was sw and a bit thermic and switchy. Short but sweet after a safe landing.
