Ladysmith - 4/5 March 2006

Chris Booysen, Dave Perelson and I flew up to Ladysmith on Saturday morning to set four routes for the Flying Nationals, two precision and two rally. We got airbourne in ZS-MOR at 7:30 and after dodging a little weather we arrived in Ladysmith at 10:30. Besides a short break for lunch the entire day was spent flying routes, with a little low cloud thrown in for variety. When we landed at 18:00 the really hospitable locals had a fire going and some meat laid on for a braai.

After breakfast on Sunday we flew the last route and then headed home via Port St Johns and the wild coast.
