Some photos taken during a vacation break to the Wild coast ,being a keen angler my family and I headed off to Mazeppa bay for the school break to do some fishing, but in case the wind blew I took along two rc gliders a Zaggi and Hillbilly. Just as well......

Well the wind pumped ,at one stage gale force ,so strong I could not open my vehicle door without a struggle.
When I could fly the lift was surprising for the size of the hills I was flying off.
This is the first time I have flown like this at sea level and would imagine the dense air and uninterrupted flow off the ocean has a lot to do with the lift.

Zaggi up against the storm clouds

No chance of a big walk of shame here, more like a big swim of shame if you out-landed.

Funny face time ,at the Cats pass this valley 20 kms inland, only produced marginal lift conditions ,but certainly entertained the locals who came out in large numbers to watch the aeroplane.
