Wilderness 2001

At the end of every year we head down to Wilderness for 2 weeks of  glorious coastal ridge-soaring.  Come for a couple of days or come for the full 2 weeks!  We stay at the Ebb & Flow Wilderness National Park Campsite.

Then we head down to Valley-of-Desolation & Porterville for some serious XC, with a short stop-over at Cape Town!

Check out the pics below of our January 2001 Annual XC Tour.
