Last Flight of Summer

Mussel Rock, Pacifica, 11-13 mph WNW. Clear Skies 3:00pm

Reverse launch from Lemmings with good kiting and control. Immediately turned north and rode the escalator to the cliff tops in one long pass to the Slide and back. Flew around the park for a few minutes, enjoying the sunshine.

Figure 8s over the Steps to get down, then a long straight-in approach on the Plateau behind the top road, facing south. Landed with a few steps and kited to a cleaner spot to finally drop the wing. (Which ended up in the bushes, anyway…)

A beautiful, safe flight with several other gliders in the air.

0:15 Mussel Rock (Lemmings), reverse launch.
