Botany Bay

The maps below show where I go in Botany Bay. This is the northern end and (as you can see) near Sydney's international airport, Mascot. For most wind conditions the west of the two crosshairs below is the platce to go. If your are heading south on General Homes drive you take the first left, at the lights, after passing under the runways. Anywhere along The Grand Parade is a good place to rig up, there is a grassy area between the road and the beach. In either a north easterly or a southerly you can zip backwards and forwards between the beach and the runway, probably about 1-2 kilometers.

For westerly winds one of the only reasonable places to go is on the other side of the runway. Go along Foreshore Road about a kilometer and check out the conditions.
