Comments :

A special soaring site downtown with a panoramic view over the shore and the nearby islands.
Weather hazards :

See breezes strenghten the wind late in the morning and the site is no more flyable. Take care not to be trapped behind the ridges at this time, and ever.
The alarm signal comes from the sea as soon as the white caps appear, it's time to land.
