Yesterday 62km task was set with huge cylinder radius because widespread cloud cover was expected. Eventually the shade came in...I took off as very first but 130 pilots did not...3 made goal despite huge shady zones on the course! I was 18 km short...Discussion is still going on if the task will be valid or not...
Today was a bit rainy...no task.
This Friday I am heading to Macedonia for the first time in my life. The Hungarian Paragliding Championships together with the Ukrainian Champs will take place there right before the World Cup event at the same spot in Krushevo. Hopefully I will also be able to compete in the World Cup but it hasn't been confirmed yet...
I am really looking forward to fly my entirely new XC setup. In consists of a cutting edge ENZO2 and an Exoceat harness, designed by Ozone. Can't wait!
Flying in Hungary is mostly tricky, but when it is good, it is still the best fun ever! Living in the Alps I was missing this kind of playing very much but 2 days ago I managed to catch this sunset at 'Csolnok' just right! This is exactly the way how I learned to control my glider when I learned to fly there. The Ozone Paragliders Ultralight 3 21m2 turned out to be the best toy for this kind of playful flying! So much fun!!! Together with the Ozo harness it will always be in my travel bag that's for sure!
I had 5 of the finest days in a row I ever experienced for cross country paragliding in the Alps! I participated in the Austrian National Championships and competed against a strongly skilled field flying huge tasks from Kössen through 4 days! Funnily some others flew 2-3x of our declared task distances breaking world records big time in the exact same area (325 km FAI triangle! in a 12 hours flight). Anyway I was still very happy to be in the comp and learned a lot from it! I was flying an Enzo1 for the first 2 and an Enzo2 for the second 2 tasks.
