Favourable winds give club a lift

Great Southern Herald - - News -

Nar­ro­gin Glid­ing Club has de­scended on the Stir­ling Range for its an­nual camp, a rit­ual for more than 40 years, on the Queen’s Birth­day long week­end.

Favourable wind con­di­tions can cre­ate a ridge of lift above Bluff Knoll, which can some­times pro­duce “waves” al­low­ing for ex­cel­lent glid­ing as it did at the week­end.

Glid­ers at the camp.
