RAGLAN on SEA BLACKSANDS 09
Myself and Pax Terry O'C Jodel EDR in company with Glyn in Zenair 701 JLZ trucked off to Raglan in murky vis conditions about 5 nauts vis but very hazy although Glyn was up around 2700ft so no probs there just grey all the way. We pushed against a head wind there and back a doosy on the way back in the Jodel as Glyn was staying over night to do the beach landing as was Bruce in MIJ staying over night but not thebeach stuff. he arrived about an hour after us.
A good turn out 70 plus aircraft of all types and sizes considering the conditions bit cool constant 10knots wind usually more very unlike Raglan.
Glyn was happy as the next plane to arrive and park was another 701 very nice it was to.
Anyhoo here is some pic's
