17/4/99 - Tom Mayne, 33.3km out and return from Winklebury

This one was a bit more interesting, and scary at times!. I spent most of my time looking for sink, then going on climbing glides. I probably could of gone further, but at about 8km out the clouds to the North started looking really nasty (1000 ft step down in the base), so scurried back to the hill down a convenient clear slot.
