Speedy help

I would like to thank the Government Flying Services (GFS) and the fire service for their help on March 2 this year.

During a perfect flying day with 10 other para-gliders at Shek O, I had to land at Cape D'Aguilar. I was too low to make it to the beach.

After landing, I found that there was no way out. Attempts to reach me with a boat failed.

We then decided to call on the GFS to lift me out - a service provided promptly and efficiently. My apologies for the trouble.
