Sellicks Beach

Coastal ridge/cliff.

Takeoff

Cliff style launch. Caution strong winds and cross winds.

Landing

Incoming tide can make beach landing tight. No top landings for HG: very tight, even on floaters. PG top landing with caution - tight.

Flight

Occasional convergence lift near this site. Also beware approaching wind changes from SW-SE.

Good site for PG.

Hazards/Comments

Power line and tree behind launch. Beware of beach users when landing. Beach becomes narrow/sloping near high tide. Beware rotor while approaching edge to launch. In summer (Dec - Mar), vehicle permits are required to drive on beach ($6) - see here. In strong conditions top landing may become impossible due to lift.
