NOTES: 1. Shelleys Beach is usually 'on' for hang gliding when there is a high in the Great Australian Bight
and current wind observations for Albany airport are 15-20 knot East NE to South SE
2. Combat sites near Perth for foam RC planes include Leighton-Cottesloe (West),
Mosman Park (East to NE) and Mindarie (West to SW to South on the groyne) - usually 'on' in 10 to 20 knot winds.
