I leave at 9am tomorrow for OR Tambo, and will arrive in Walvis around 2pm.
My schedule is as follows :
  • 01 Oct - Fly to Walvis and spend 1 night over (Luderitz flight has already left when I land from Jhb)
  • 02 Oct - Fly to Luderitz and get there around 14h30. Some wind forecast, so I’ll go straight to the speed strip to check it out
  • 03 Oct - BIG wind forecast on Friday. It’s too soon for me to have settled in, but I’ll give it a bash. I’ll try to shake the office cobwebs.
  • 04 Oct - More wind forecast, not as strong, but still over 30 knots. Let’s see what happens.
  • 05 Oct - Light backs off and the wait begins.
  • 19 Oct - Fly back to Walvis and spend a day and a half there. Hopefully I would have achieved several personal bests by this time.
  • 21 Oct - Fly back to Johannesburg. I’ll be missing my family like mad by this stage.
