WA State Hang Gliding Championships 25 February to 4 March 2017
"Flatland flying in the Western Australian wheat belt is as good as anywhere else in Australia, including Forbes or Dalby.
Westonia is a great little wheat belt town with a pub, pool, bowling green and recreation centre which was used as competition headquarters. The town has everything we needed for a comp. And also blessed by the weather gods.
Enjoy cloudbases of nine grand with cumulus clouds to mark our thermals, and on other days things can be more challenging, with blue conditions and thermals to only five or six grand. The comp has everything – great weather, plenty of PBs and first XCs for novice and intermediate pilots. And flying with eagles. See you there." [Richard Breyley]
No other competition in Australia offers so much for only a small entry fee. The flying in the last few years has been great with plenty of airtime, Personal Best flights and big cross country miles.
In 2017 the comps will again have an “A” sanction. What does this mean to you? If you just fly for the fun of it, absolutely nothing. It’s still the same fun comp as last year. If like to check out your place on the Australian ladder, you will get a few more points.
Western Australia is where the ground is is made up of gold bullion, forward thinking institutions, there's more women than men, and it's no big secret that the girls are really gorgeous, beautiful, and so friendly, without the east coast big city gold digger attitude. You'll never never know, if you never never go. Good times!
