‘I Got Scared’: Watch A Hairy Hang Glider Ride Near Terrace

‘Totally unexpected’, says Yanick Boisclair.

Conditions seemed good when hang glider Yanick Boisclair set off from a ridge near Terrace. But once in the air things got a bit scary.  

“Wind at launch and along the ridge was very calm,” reads his description of a video he recently posted to Youtube.

“Once I got off the ridge it was so strong that I had to land at the golf course. I could barely penetrate the wind. Totally unexpected. Wind conditions are to be assessed very meticulously. Use all weather sources available.

This could have been dangerous. I got scared.”

We’re grateful to hear that the ride ended up ok. Check out the full video here.
