The Ridgeman (aka the gilpen) is back.
Rory succesfully flew from Sai Chia to Liu Gwei on 3 consecutive weekends before he left for Canada over Christmas. Well done, Rory. His record was however shortlived. Meet Mr. Consistency. Les Sharp did not just stand there with his arms folded and thought he should do something about this. He has to date (as I’m writing) flown to LG 4 consecutive times (and counting).
In fact I think it is 5 trips in 6 weekends. Truly a remarkable feat. Right up there with Will Gadd’s world record of 3oo odd miles.
This coming weekend’s weather looks a bit iffy. Come wind, strong lift or little sink, I’ll be there on Saturday.
THE RACE IS ON — LIU GWEI and BACK
Be there or………somewhere else
