Challenging competition in unusual conditions
This year was very difficult for paragliding comps all over the world. And our championship was not an exclusion. When in previous years we got used to 4000+ cloud base this year we were limited to 3000 at most. Besides strong winds and rains forced us to cancel many days. Still with all possible respect to safety we managed to have 4 valid tasks. Our team worked hard for the organization of this event and we are glad all pilots returned back safe. We congratulate the winners and wish every one new achievements and happy landings!
