Day 2 learn to Hangglide - big smiles!

A strong easterly was perfect for a lot of airtime for the girls today. We first went to Heubach, but the wind was off too much, so we went back and flew at the low little Eupe slope at Wasserkuppe. We put ropes on the glider so we could control the beginners pitch and roll. A nice laminar breeze took the girls up to about 10 m and they loved it! Big beaming smiles in the air all day.
I can feel my legs from running with them up and down the slope, great training with a good purpose. Predictions are south for Saturday, and the big south slope is the nicest training hill you can possibly wish for, with the possibility of really long flights.
