British Paragliding Championship 2012 Meduno, Italy

06/18/2012

We are happy to announce that our chief instructor Renata Kuhnova finished on second place at British Championship Round 1.

Moreover, it’s nice to see her achieved 2nd place on a serial EN D AXIS Venus 3, because our competition glider Mercury SPORT is still at its final stage of development. The results of British championship proved that AXIS gliders can easily compete on top level with other brands and even, new competition EN D breed Ozone Enzo was left behind.

If you are tired of dreadful British weather, join us on one of our trips abroad and enjoy yourself under supervision of our CFI Renata Kuhnova.

Renata’s competition report: Meduno’s weather was a nice surprise, considering that particular week was unflyable in whole Europe. First two training days were perfect and on first competition day cloud base was at 2200 ma.s.l. with great visibility. Unfortunately, task was cancelled due to strong wind and injury of one British pilot. Anyway few pilots managed to reach the goal of 80 km. Following days rain showers kept us on the ground. After that, two more 40 km local tasks were flown with lots of turn points and technically difficult spots.

Organizers prepared great barbecue in local birreri with homemade yeast beer and afterparty. All pilots stayed in caravans at the landing area or in nearby campsite. The competition was well organized with friendly atmosphere and good technical tasks. The only negative for most of pilots might be quite dear registration fee in comparison with others competitions.

Ciao Renata
