2013 SSA Region 3 Soaring at Harris Hill

Sailplanes at Harris Hill

Sailplanes at Harris Hill

I recently spent a few days at the 2013 Soaring Society of America (SSA) Region 3 soaring contest held at the Harris Hill gliderport in Elmira, New York. Harris Hill, which overlooks the Chemung Valley, is known as the birthplace of soaring in the United States.

Below are a few of the images captured along with links to a number of video clips of some of the action.
