750 Kilometers from Bacchus

The year was 1975 – yes they had gliders in those days. The Victorian State Championships were held at Bacchus Marsh from the 21st January – 1st February. I flew our syndicate Kestrel 17m for the first four days, a glider that we had bought at the end of the Waikerie World Comps 12 months earlier. As with any competition, and in particular one from Bacchus, the ‘75 State comps started with wet and windy weather – a no contest day on the Saturday.
