Bulwer has seen some great paragliding weather lately. Last weekend student Brad logged 16 flights! Hans had great tandem flights on Sunday. The air is very smoky despite a massive thunderstorm that swept through yesterday evening. We got 25mm of rain, finally some decent precipitation! This week every day has been flyable at Bulwer except on Monday there was a strong Westerly in the morning.
It was a great afternoon with student Brad logging nine flights and Dylan Fairfield logging tandem flights with Gerald Zondi as passenger. Josh landed in Himeville he got 700m above the peaks.
Over the long weekend we were fully booked with bikers entering the Man on Machine offroad race. We also had some visitors from Bloemfontein, Lambert and Hentie, with their friend Erard doing his first bit of paragliding. The weather was inconsistent and mostly short flights were done. This weekend we had Anwar and Mark from Durban doing their first paragliding. On Saturday the wind was North to Northeast in the afternoon, and the two new students had smooth first flights from the saddle. Sunday was a good paragliding day for all and the guys logged two more flights each. Today was stable and the wind only really picked up for a bit of thermic and valley release after two o'clock
