Flying New site Serpentine, then flying new distance/areas at sedge

Serpentine.

Trying the new site at Serpentine, great takeoff, the day was stable so difficult to stay high, bubbly thermals and small, difficult to use.

Danny and myself flew while the others watched climbing to the inversion layer but technical. We decided to land and move to Sedge.

Sedge also inverted in the beginning, scrappy air, but as the coastal cool air moved in it became a lot more smooth and soarable.

 

We flew for a few hours, top landing and flying again, later three of us ventured east towards Swart vlei lake and beyond  new area to fly amazing views of the lake and wind more square to the ridge.

A very successful day and great flying.
