Ghrchi was the first to launch today. 12h30...not a cloud in the sky and very hot, turbulent and strong wind. He had a assymetric collapse shortly (2 min) after take and had to deploy his reserve. He landed behind launch, without a scratch. I launched my hang glider shortly afterwards and was rewarded with a 2.5 hour flight. Rory borrowed my gloves and I flew the first hour with sweaty palms. Conditions very rough. Lionel launched next with Rory and San San next. They all had long flights too. Rory said afterwards:" today was not fun flying a paragliding"  Posted by Picasa

and Lionel's wife, Jia-Jia. They live in Taipei and came down south (camping) for a few days. Come again, please Lionel ;-)  Posted by Picasa
