Richard Westgate was a paragliding world record holder and did four flights over 100km in the UK in six weeks in June/July 2008. In this podcast, Richard talks about those four flights, and general tips on flying long distances. [As many people will know, Richard sadly died in December 2012. He was a brilliant pilot, always willing to share with others, and an extremely nice person. He is a great loss to the flying community].
