PCC Glider Day


PCC (Peninsula Channel Commanders) RC club invited some sailplane flyers to join them for their PCC Glider Day and partake in some soaring action. The day turned out to be beautiful and after a few hi-start launches the wind started to pick up and the guys started going to the cliffs to take advantage of the ocean slope lift over the tall cliffs. Though the winds were Northerly and didn't generate huge lift, there was plenty to keep up the floaters as long as one could stand it. Thanks to PCC members for a great day.

Yes, that is a nice place to fly. Just don't stand too close to the cliff edge!

These photos are from last time we were flying gliders at PCC.
