Andy Heap went for his first flight for the gliding silly season from Lake Station near St Arnaud in the Nelson Lakes Gliding Club Grob Twin Astir last weekend.
And found some weak wave and got above the cloud.
Looking down on St Arnaud and Lake Rotoiti with Mount Robert to the right and the Kaikoura's in the far distance.
Climbing at about 3 knots through 9240 feet and with the string straight - how on earth did you manage that Andy ?
It's MZ and Mike must be flying if we are going up and the string is straight!
