Oz 2007, Bogong Cup

You can have a hanggliding competition anywhere in the world, and it will rain there. We are professional drought breakers now, any farmers needing some rain can just arrange a big international competition where pilots travel around half the world to fly.

Actually we got to freefly after the task was cancelled yesterday because of rain and overdevelopment. It was strange air, probably because of the moisture that made the thermals weak and difficult. Still it was good to be in the air again.

Today it pours down. We will pack up and head to Sydney as the forecast is not good at all for tomorrow. Looks wery good for next week, and in Manilla it’s been very good, pilots have been flying 240 and 270km triangles up there. Wish we had gone there, but hindsight is very precise.
