This site probably takes a light W to NW wind. It was a little choppy in the NNW wind this day. It is a good 8:1 glide out to safe landing areas with a respectable head wind component. Takeoff is on the west side of Coopers Knob near a water trough/faintain and landing is across the road from the Raspberry Cafe near Taitapu. A promising new site ~ be respectful of the land owners. Happy landings Rod

SIV course Lake Ohau 26-27 Feb

Mark Hardman from Queenstown will be running an SIV course at Lake Ohau this weekend (weather permitting).

Even if you don't want to do the course it's a great opportunity to fly a new site inland.

More info to follow.
