It was 460m of climbing and we then rode down the "down-hill" track which was way too steep for us.
It was not perfect conditions for flying but I got 3 flights in including one of about an hour.

Monday Kate did a second tandem flight in light conditions and Larry and I did a quick solo flightames for his in the light conditions early. By the time we got back to the top it had got quite windy with peak gusts of 15 knots. Andrew took James for his first tandem flight.
Again Larry and I took solo flights and although I was well above launch I headed to land with the thought of another fight. We decided to pack up and head to Beechworth for a quick ride at the great Mountain Bike track.
