Yes, I have a ridiculous tan, but it’s just there to remind all of you how much fun it is to fly even if you are baking in the sun. Either way, Colin’s red face should be distraction enough!
Yup, this weekend saw a ton of pilots back at Native Place set to open the paragliding season with gusto. (And also a teensy hope of shooting stars, which we did see, although 4 was the final count). Dr Satish was at Tower Hill with his brand new tricoloured wing. The Ozone Mojo 4 was a beauty to watch at take off, and even better to fly according to its pilot.
The flying continued all morning, with pilots going back for more flights as the wind welcomed everyone back in the air. The only small disappointment was the amount of development at the base of Tower Hill. So make sure to scope out the landing field and get a brief from the Fly Nirvana crew before you take off.
And of course, the party went on back at Native Place, with the hope of seeing some more shooting stars, but hopefully we’re luckier next time (there’ll be an update on Facebook for the next meteor shower). And it plans to continue this week with Jannis and Angeliki back at the house!
They’re heading to the paragliding site with us soon, as the conditions continue to stay beautiful for some ridge soaring (and some brave attempts at thermalling from me). Who is joining us for the next parawaiting session?
