Mussel Rock, Pacifica, 5pm. West @ 10mph
Good ground handling and launch from Tomcat. Headed N along Steps, decided I was too low to make it to cliffs, turned back, decided I was too low to make it anywhere, turned N again and set up for landing in the Saddle. Didn’t give myself enough landing strip, I touched down in front of a big Star Thistle bush. Spent about 45 minutes rescuing glider with shears and saw. Met Dave. Thanks for the clippers and saw, Dave!
- Hurried, cramped landing due to lack of planning.
- Didn’t announce launch.
- Star Thistle. Killing wing right away would have helped a lot.
