XC Camp – Flying Achieved on Thursday

Approximately 32 pilots flew from Blowhard. Half a dozen pilots flew NZ personal bests 🙂 Including quite newly-qualified pilots Kate Flemm (34 km) and Sam Hamill (28 km). A light northerly day with strong valley breezes below. Thickening high cloud was a feature from 3pm. Best open distance was 76.7 km by Jean Brossard, followed by Stew Karstens about a km back and another half dozen pilots landed around the 70 km mark.
