Fun on the Easterly Ridges

Great fun flying the easterly ridges of Malvern and Pandy on Saturday. I last flew these ridges many years ago, in my Hang Gliding days. A good 15 to 20 knot easterly on Saturday gave me an opportunity to revisit them. Getting there was easy of course, down wind with 3 to 4 knot climbs to 3500ft. As expected, getting back needed the engine for the last 70km, as the day died, but it was a very enjoyable day.
