I have been practicing at the Portugese Bend slope. Quite different than Fermin in the fact that it has been cornering either a little bit, or quite a bit each time I have been there. The good thing about it is the fact that it takes way more precision to extract punch from the slope, so I feel it is quality practice. Fermin offers a wide lift band, and a wingspan here and there isnt near the penalty as one may expect from P.B. The landing at P.B. is a very short walk and there is a good deal of wind for the flaps to grab onto, so you can pretty much fly to an exact spot continually- and no traffic to deal with, or hills to climb, not that it bothered me...
We have a F3F event there this weekend, hopefully the club enjoys the site.
