The far north branch of the Auckland club (Tom and Kevin) would like to invite pilots to explore the potential of our main site.

The site: Totara north - Ness Road (about 4kms north of Totara North turn off just off highway 10).

  • West-southwest to south-south west facing
  • 1050ft ASL
  • Great launch and set up area
  • Good landings
  • Easy access. 10 minutes from landing to launch(multiple flights possible)
  • Friendly land owner
  • Spectacular scenery 
  • Interesting convergence
  • No airspace restrictions.
  • Cloud base 4500ft - 5500ft
  • Lots of accommodation options

I believe this site has the potential for some great flights. Come and help show us how it’s done. Situated between the Whangaroa and Mangonui harbours we get some great convergence with over 1000ft/minute lift common. Some days the whole valley just pops of with lift everywhere.
 
Lots of levels of accommodation options available at Tauranga bay, Taupo bay, Whangaroa, Hihi, or Mangonui. Fishing, surfing, or diving options close by.
 
Meet at 10:30am at Kahoe farm, Ness Road.  1km up on the left.  We will signpost it.
