The event has consisted of the carrying of a baton around Australia by relay.

The glider will be flown in by Cadet Sarah Bradshaw who’s Dad is in the RAAF and will be ground crew.

Sarah will have instructor Catherine Conway in the back seat who was the last one to land a glider at YPAD back in 1989.
