Leighton breaks Auckland PG distance record

Leighton Joll has broken the Dill's Hill site record with a 77km open distance flight which is also the longest flight ever in the Auckland area.

Eleven thermals and couple of low saves, and Leighton ducked under the Whangarei MBZ.

Previously, the longest flight in the Auckland area was 67.2km by Evan Lamberton from Moirs Hill.

Leighton was accompanied, most of the way, by his wing man, Lukas Walton-Keim.
