Easterly Lee Wave off the Kaimais

Posted 9 years, 3 months ago    4 comments

Towed to 2500' into the secondary wave, although it was very patchy

Slowly climbed to 4000'

Jumped across to the primary, which was stronger and rougher, although still not well defined.

Found the good lift, climbed to 6500' :)

Flight was in GXP, the clubs new Discuss B, and was up for about 1 and a half hours, then it started getting dark...

Well done Tim.
Have you lodged your world record claim?

Sweeeet,
I picked up a bit of wave south of you but was too low to get anything decent so just mucked around with thermal,

No ASI in PK certainly didnt help matters...

Well done

J
