Bulletin September 2015


Hello and welcome (Lowena dhis ha dynnargh dhis).

This month’s KHPA news: 

Graham & Kaz Phipps of Cloud 9 have decided to scale down their commitments by no longer providing Hang Gliding Instruction.

Editors comments:

Being a summer holidaying Emmet to Cornwall for some thirty years prior to moving here means it came as no surprise that the unsettled weather of August would give way to much better soaring conditions in September.

The many photos taken (sadly most not very good) at Carbis Bay on the 6th September and later this month at Vault Bay on the 26th are testament to this (both were cracking days for free flying).

Finally in Safety Matters I’ve included IMHO the most important piece of video since Jocky Sanderson’s ‘Security In Flight’; I have literally watch this video scores of times.

Club Chat:

A great day at Carbis Bay.
