After weeks of Xmas rain, Peter, Warren, Ben, Kieran got a few days of xc. After more days of rain, the next wave of pilots below managed to suck some more airtime out of the green landscape.
(Simon broke his personal distance and duration…well done.)

New South Wales Hang Gliding State Titles
17-23 Feb 2013

The New South Wales Hang Gliding State Titles is an A Grade hang gliding competition held each february in Manilla, Australia's premier X-C soaring site.

This year, the NSW State Titles will be held from 17th to 23rd February 2013.

The comp attracts the best of the best from Australia, and around the world, so is the ideal site for up and coming pilots to learn from those at the top of their game. It is also the ideal comp for newer pilots wishing to fly big air and fly big flights.

Manilla was Mediocre at Easter

We drove up to manilla on thursday night, and awoke to a rainbow, and high cloud covering the sky. Thankfully, the cloud broke up a bit over the next few hours and a bunch of hang glider pilots made our way up to the top of the hill.

With the paraglider pilots all on the North East launch, and light cycles coming straight in on all launches, Conrad & I decided to set up on the West launch where we hoped for better chances once the sun had passed overhead. Pete, Richard and Nigel decided to go back down to their cabins for beer.
