After a 4 AM start from CT, a quick rendevoux in Hermanus at 5:30 to collect 2 more desperates, we hit the road! Arriving there around 8:30, we tumbled out of the bakkie eager to get some air only to find that the wind was running the length of the beach instead of apposing it which meant NO AIR TIME! We ground handled on the beach for a while and played on the dunes with very little satisfaction before we packed up damp and sandy wings (a big no no) and head off to find beer and beds....
We booked into The Beach House http://www.wildernessbeachhouse.com/ a great little spot that has recently been "made over" where we recieved fabulous food, cold beers, hot showers, and brilliant white linened beds at a very affordable price. The following morning we woke up to mist and rain and strong winds so decided to head back to the sh1ty city.
That was officially my 3rd trip to the Wilderness to get some flying in and the 3rd time nothing happened, with no refund available! For now I am happy with my Hermanus mountain and hoping the forecast is correct for new years day.... if not, at least it will only be a 4 min drive wasted!
