The Season Has Started
Hi there guys last few days have been great flying in the Garden Route and Sedgefield in particular with good strong high climbs . There have been days for good XC potential but work is holding me back . Friday flew with a Tandem to Cola beach and carried on ridge soaring for a few kms down the ridge to return and land near Pili Pili . These strong thermals some 5-6 m/sec climbs and high cloudbase is due to the high lapse rate as the air is really colder the higher you go and the ground really heating up . Naturally there is more turbulence and one cant sleep on the job as you may have your wingtip slap you awake . So guys don't be goldfish and go up done on ridge all day take the opportunity to explore and fly a little XC now again the satisfaction is immense . Spring has arrived !
