Another Beautiful Shelar Evening

Another Beautiful Shelar Evening


Sanjay and I drove to the site together just after the team. The wind was straight when we got there at 4 pm. The tandems were already in the air and students were ground handling and doing hops. Got to takeoff at past 5 and geared up. It was a full on Shelar evening with lift all over, strong wind above and getting high was the easiest thing in fact one had to fight to come down to land at sunset. It was even lifting as low as the final landing approach making it pretty tricky. Dag took Hiren on a full on acro tandem and introduced him to the subtleties of a good spiral.
