31. October 2014 - Iquique

Now, as I am in the lead again on Iquique paraglider flights on the Xcontest, I studied the former record flight of Michal from 2013 and found out, that for me it would be kind of easy to copy his flight and just add overflying lands end to his flight. Michal like the majority of pilots flying here do not overfly this landmark, because it it tricky - low and a rather long low laying lee side - and it includes the danger of getting grounded somewhere north of it, which results in some hundred meters of altitude gravel climbing or boat rescue. But I have overflown lands end until today several times successfully and if it would look doable, I would just do. And I do !
