Christian Ciech's Penalties on Task 3

Just short of goal

I wondered in the last Oz Report why Christian got fewer time and arrival points than pilots who were slower than he was. Turns out if I had looked more closely I would have seen that he made the end of the speed section but just came up 90 meters short of the goal cylinder. His points were docked 20%.

Paraglider scoring takes away all your time points if you don't make it to the goal cylinder and there are no arrival position points.

Fastest Competition Speed?

Task 3 at the Monte Cucco Piero Alberini International Trophy 2021

Filippo Oppici|Marco Laurenzi|Monte Cucco Piero Alberini International Trophy 2021|Steve Pearson|triangle

The task:

No Leg Dist. Radius
1 0.0 km 400 m
2 Ss 2.3 km 15000 m
3 36.8 km 5000 m
4 56.8 km 3000 m
5 91.4 km 5000 m
6 113.3 km 2000 m
7 Es 119.4 km 1000 m
8 120.0 km 400 m

The task is almost an out and return from the start of the speed section (SS) to the end of the speed section (ES). The leg distances shown in the chart above are the optimized distances, those displayed on the map.

Three pilots had average task speeds of over 59 km/h (36.7 mph) in the speed section.

# Name Speed (km/h)
1 Filippo Oppici 59.4
2 Marco Laurenzi 59.2
4 David Gregoire 59.1

The optimized task distance between the SS and the ES is 116.939 km.

Steve Pearson asks the question, is this the highest task speed attained in a competition in Europe for a triangle or out and return task over 100 km?

The COVID polices and more

Corinna Schwiegershausen <<corinna>> writes:

It was three weeks ago when I got a call from Swiss Nic, asking me to help him and his friend Damien Zahn to get their glider checked in on their Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Mexico (they were already at Frankfurt airport). Unfortunately they didn’t contact me earlier. At the moment, only an A350 flies to Mexico, full of passengers and cargo, no space for gliders. Also, about eight months ago Lufthansa changed their checked luggage policy - strictly no more than 3m length… I told the guys they don’t have a chance to fly over with their gliders, so they brought the gliders back to Switzerland and had a take a later flight without gliders and rent gliders from Rudy or other Mexicans.

At the moment, the flight schedule looks still blank for April, lots of flights had been postponed to May, like the LH464 to Orlando for example. A small A340 goes to Miami, but it is really difficult to go through that large airport with a hang glider - I don’t know if it is possible there to check in a glider, even if the policy allowed it. I don’t know how the schedules of other airlines look like.

The vaccination rate is very slow over here, my Dad (over 80) belongs to the first vaccination group and doesn't even have an appointment yet, so I believe, hope and pray that mine will be possible in April, but definitely not before that. As the situation with my parents is quite tense considering their health, I am super careful, knowing that many people who travel around are not careful, or obeying the mask rules in their own way. Preferably the guys who are coughing like to keep the masks off their noses.

Rules over here are that I have to go into a 10 day quarantine after returning from a high incidence country (which the US still is), but I would probably have to work right after returning from Florida - not legal, at least not with the current rules. I guess other people with other jobs (or without jobs) are more flexible, but I definitely can’t risk my job in this situation.

For the above reasons, I sadly had to cancel my participation for the first comp, probably also for the second.

With lockdowns still very strict (and some bold guys moving rather illegally from one place to the other) and complicated, I don’t see many European pilots coming over, unless they can rent a glider over there, are already vaccinated and don’t need to obey quarantines. Hmm, I actually don’t see how they would enter the US, because the travel ban for non-US citizens is still on. Even though I have a visa for the US, I could still not just fly over right now, I would not be admitted.

Have you heard anything in your news that gives us a date for the end of the US lockdown, allowing Europeans to enter the US again? A few guys, like Konrad Heilmann, have all passports for the whole world, US, European, Brazilian. He will come over no matter what (he actually called me last October, trying to check in a glider in Sao Paulo on Lufthansa, also without success).

I really wish I had better news. The good news is that we are still healthy, alive, with a job, and some day hopefully able to meet and comp fly again overseas.

Corinna Schwiegershausen feels right at home in the skies above Lake County, taking in the countryside from her hang glider as she competed in an international competition.

She hardly ever has her feet on the ground — she’s either flying between her native Germany and Orlando or South America as a flight attendant for Lufthansa airline or soaring among the clouds and birds on her hang glider.

Another blue day with a little more wind than forecasted

Tuesday

Sunny, with a high near 84. North wind 5 to 10 mph becoming east in the afternoon.
Surface wind 9 decreasing to 7 mph, east, northeast

HRRR 3, 2 PM:

Updraft velocity: 560 fpm
TOL: 4,300’
Wind TOUL: 6 mph, northeast
B/S: 10.0
Surface winds 5 mph northeast
Looks like a great day with light winds and a high TOL later in the day. No cu’s.

The task committee calls a box task to the northwest. The radii of the turnpoints are chosen very carefully to make it pilot friendly with available landing areas. For example, a three kilometer cylinder around Baron:

We don't have to fly over the swamp to the east and north.

I launch nineteenth just after Larry behind Bobby Bailey. He wraps it up tight low in lift to make his little tug climb, but I hold on any way until he takes me over to the forming gaggle to the north. It's 124 fpm to 3,400'. As I top out it's a little over half an hour before the window opens.

The 5 mph east wind is pushing us toward the edge of the start cylinder, but it's too early to go over there and get trapped against the western side. We hold back in light lift biding out time. I'm on the radio with Larry.

At 1:45 we are near the edge of the cylinder and working up to 3,700'. With the light wind we are able to stay close and take the first start gate at 1PM at 3,400'. A few pilots like Jonny and Zac will take the second gate twenty minutes later.

The thermals are very crowded and we hope to get away from other than a few pilots who we want to work as bird dogs. But for a while everyone sticks together and you are just lucky the out of control pilots, or the rude ones, don't hit you.

We are not going to get high, so it's game of of dare as we head out to the west to see if we can find the next thermal from 2,000'. It takes eight thermals to get to Kokee with a quartering tail wind from the northeast at 7 mph. We find between 100 fpm and 300 fpm climbing to 3,600'. The thermals are still full. Larry and I are working together.

The turnpoint after Kokee is off to the northeast which gives us a bit of a headwind at 6 mph. We're following about four pilots heading toward the town of Bushnell and getting lower and lower without a sign of lift. My neck is sore from all the craning around I'm doing to keep out of everyone's way.

Down to 1,400' AGL I look back to see pilots climbing a little over a kilometer behind me. Larry reports lift ahead but I'm feeling a little too low to make it there in the head wind. This is where we lose contact with each other (other than on the radio). I climb from 1,000' AGL to 3,500' along with half a dozen other pilots.

Pushing ahead I'm back down to 1,100' AGL after 7 kilometers but there are spotters out ahead finding the lift and I climb out at 300 fpm to 3,200'. The head wind continues to be a problem and it is a back and forth fight in weak lift by the landfill trying to make the next waypoint around Coleman north of the mines and west of the prisons. It takes 45 minutes to go 11 kilometers.

I tag the turnpoint at 1,500' and leave it at 2,800'. There are lots of houses in this new development to fly over but fortunately there is also a mine to the south of them. I find good lift over the mines and climbing in a 9 mph east northeast wind get to 4,200' at 250 fpm.

The next optimized turnpoint is due east. I've got some altitude to use. I'm by myself as Larry and his gaggle are ten kilometers ahead and moving slowly.

As I make it to the optimized point on the Baron cylinder five or six gliders come over me about 200 feet higher. Great, now I'll have some help. We tick the turnpoint and head south southeast. I haven't found much lift since leaving the good thermal that got me over 4,000'. We get lower and lower.

Crossing the turnpike to the southeast I see the lowest guy in front of me take one turn then head off with the others to get in a thermal on the north side of the turnpike. I'm down to 800 AGL and don't see any landing areas in that direction. I take a turn in the area where the previous pilot turned, but find just sink. But less sink than I was experiencing. I drift back and find 100 fpm at 700' AGL. I'm over huge open fields.

There is a good paved east/west road just half a kilometer to my north. I'm drifting at 10 mph to the west. There are open fields for 5 kilometers. If I stay up I know that I can get out fairly easily. I hang tight at 97 fpm.

Corinna flies right at my altitude right next to me but doesn't stop and thermal with me. She continues east and quickly lands. After a few minutes two gliders chase back to me from the group that had gone to the north of the turnpike and come in under me. I think it is Olav on a Moyes Litespeed and Hugo Rodriguez on a Combat. I get to hang with them just above them as we drift quickly west.

In twenty seven minutes we climb  to 4,000'. It's 5:15 PM. I follow Olav to the southeast where he finds a little lift. I move over to the small fire to the west but that gives only 50 fpm. I lose track of Olav and stick with Hugo as we head to the next fire. That one provides negative lift.

We head down the road that goes to Center Hill from Mascotte but soon run out of altitude and land in big fields. It looks like Olav got within one kilometer of goal.

If there's a homologation in your bag for me

Alexandra Serebrennikova (Sasha) <<multikss>> writes:

I haven’t expressed myself in a while, but I think it might need to become an open discussion, as I alone cannot get through to FAI/CIVL so far.

The matter concerns my four women world record claims that I made after flying an FAI triangle 210 km and a distance to goal of 408.1 km at Forbes in Dec’17 – Jan’18 last year. Altogether there were five claims made, but one, namely open distance, got cancelled earlier, since it was only 900 m longer than Corinna’s current Record (407.2), which is by a 100 meter not long enough to be a new record. So the other four were as follows:

Straight distance to a declared goal: 407,99 km 02 Jan 2018, Alexandra Serebrennikova (RUS), dossier under review

Free distance using up to 3 turn points: 417,2 km 02 Jan 2018, Alexandra Serebrennikova (RUS), dossier under review

Distance over a triangular course: 210,4 km 27 Dec 2017, Alexandra Serebrennikova (RUS), dossier under review

Speed over a triangular course of 200 km: 37,83 km/h 27 Dec 201,7 Alexandra Serebrennikova (RUS), dossier under review

Here is just a little introduction on how the records have to be processed after they are flown. The rules of Section 7 are pretty straight forward. According to them, my national aero club  and I were to prepare and send a dossier with the confirmation documents, tracklogs, declared tasks, etc. These dossiers are then to be sent to FAI within strictly defined time of 120 days after the preliminary claim is received. At first I was a bit worried about this paper work with Russian National Aerosports Federation, but to my relief I have to admit they were really helpful and quick in preparing everything, so all the dossiers were sent well before the deadline. Here I’d like to underline that they were sent a year ago.

When you make a claim you have to pay a 200CHF (~200 Euro) fee for each one (so 800 Swiss Francs for my four records) to cover the administration costs of the FAI to process them. Here again I've got to thank my federation for finding the way to do it for me, everything was paid on time.

Now coming to my point. After patiently waiting for about nine months and not receiving any news, notes, enquiries, whatsoever, I started wondering about the claims. I wrote a couple letters to the official email, <records>, asking if there is any news and when I can hope to get the claims finalized. Today is about a year since sending in the dossiers, and despite these letters, there is still no answer. All that I once got was "We are doing what we can according to the work load".

At the same time I was following some other claims, for instance, in paragliding. They were sent in later than mine and have already been ratified. I’m happy for those guys though, having things working motivates one to attempt the new records, doesn’t it?

As for me, I don’t think my motivation to fly for records and overall good interesting flights will fade, but this sort of situation isn’t helping  the rapidly fading women's hang gliding. I hope the Florida women's worlds will take place, but apart from it there are virtually no competitions for women only. Records are one of the last ways to push it on the official level and to keep it viral. Honesty I had an impression CIVL and FAI were sort of caring about this.

So guys, if you’re thinking of flying records, go for it, it’s fun and your grandma and all your friends will be very impressed with your skills, one of which should be patience. Train it, ‘cause you’ll need it during the flight as well as to a much bigger scale afterwards.

Corinna on the⁢ 2018 pre-Worlds »

I didn't feel safe

CIVL|Corinna Schwiegershausen|pre-Worlds 2018

Corinna Schwiegershausen writes:

In case you wondered why I didn't fly the 3rd task of the pre-worlds, this is the reason. I bailed out of the competition, gave it up, for the first time in my competition flying. I didn't feel safe, didn't have fun, and to me it wasn't a fair comp if I only wonder if I will make it to the ground safely.

The goals of the first two tasks felt dodgy to me. I watched some of our most accomplished pilots having really iffy landings there. When I told a safety committee member and he asked the organizer about that, we were told to just land in the dry river bed next to the landing. And don't put your carbon base bar down, otherwise it will break on the stones…?

Almost two hour drives through narrow, windy roads to take offs are exhausting even before the flying starts. Last minute preparation of launches and take off order. The girls and the other volunteers on take off worked hard to make up for the mess the organizer left them with.

No turnpoint or airspace maps, not even virtual ones. No shade for the pilots at briefing areas on take off in 37°C Italian summer heat makes thorough preparation of a flight almost impossible.

It takes a lot of work and preparation for a big comp like this. I have done it myself. That's why I gave it a three day chance to improve. But it didn't.

I decided for myself to not compete at the worlds championship next year, even if I might be qualified. I told CIVL officials about my decision, and left the competition to fly and land in my favorite, fun area Greifenburg. The comp guys visited me in the air over Greifenburg on yesterday's task.

Unfortunately they didn't pick one of the beautiful, huge fields in Austria as a goal. Several pilots got hurt landing in goal. I am sad, but not surprised. I am so sorry to hear about my friends in hospital, and others damaging their gliders. In the official goal. This is a no go for any responsible competition organizer.

I lost a lot of money and possible world ranking points quitting this competition, but I kept my health. And I actually really enjoyed my own little 160km triangle very much yesterday. I might have been way more over my limit than other, stronger pilots than me.

Nevertheless, I really hope that, for everyone's safety, fairness and fun reasons, we will fly the next world championship in a different place, with a different organizer - because I like to compete and fly with my friends from all over the world. Like Petr says, safe, fair and with fun. But not under these circumstances.

Petr Benes down early. Alex Ploner out in the lead with Tom Weissenberger at 3:30 PM.

Alex out in front landed just before goal after a valiant effort. Tom Weissenberger wisely stayed back in the hills and worked slowly to get high enough to make it in way ahead of everyone else.

Carl Wallbank, and the two Czech's, Petr and Dan, came close to goal together, but Dan found a little something over the field that Carl and Petr landed in, and came in second.

Christian Ciech, after apparently flying a paraglider all day, just hung and hung in nothing getting further and further away from goal as Grant Crossingham, who was earlier with but below Christian, worked back in the hills even further downwind.

Then came four pilots who had been much further behind, Jonny, Corinna, Malcolm and Dave Mathews. Christian down 6.5 km out. Grant down. Dave down. Malcolm down. Jonny down a few feet from goal.

Corinna climbing near goal. Yoko climbing three kilometers further back. Corinna third into goal. Yoko lands near Jonny.

Petr Polách writes:

One of the worst conditions I have ever flown in. For the first time I am gonna fill in the task report with negative attitude. And I am not gonna fly in similar condition again.

At several places I had severe problems to keep the wing barely level. I couldn't even control my speed properly. It's only luck nobody got hurt. Peeople climbing severely, then falling five meters down in the gaggles. I only used full VG few times.

Can anyone explain how Thomas Weissenberger did the task so quickly?

So final thought: I like to push myself, but this was even beyond my personal limits.

Two pilots are missing from this scoring, Grant Crossingham and Alexander Barvinskiy, both of whom were near goal.

407.8 kilometers, the new women's distance to goal world record

407.8 kilometers, the new women's distance to goal world record

Sasha had a declared goal

CIVL|Corinna Schwiegershausen|record

https://www.xcontest.org/world/en/flights/detail:Sasha/2.1.2018/00:53

While she apparently just missed the open distance record, she seems to have surpassed Corinna's newly declared distance to goal record of 405.83 km. Both Corinna's and Sahsa's record flights have been so close to the previous records (not Corinna's distance to goal record) that it is hard to say for certain that they will be homologated by FAI/CIVL as new records.

Sasha writes:

Yes, we declared 407.8 km. I made an idiotic mistake by not towing a bit further upwind to make the open longer, was fixed too much on the declared task.

Apart from that we will claim free distance over up to 3 turnpoints, which will be about 419 km.

Sasha, another world record?

She passed goal and kept going for 410 km perhaps

Corinna Schwiegershausen|record|Yoko Isomoto

The goal was an amazing 379 km from Forbes to Manilla.

This 235 mile goal task would be the longest competition task completed. The previous one was 368 km also from Forbes.  Yoko set the women's world record declared distance to goal when she made goal that day. Corinna then surpassed that distance in Brazil in November at 406 km (http://ozreport.com/21.223).

Gerolf reports that Sasha made goal and continued on. He says that she did 406+ km, maybe enough to set the new open distance world record.

Corinna's Report

She finally gets time to write it up

Corinna Schwiegershausen

http://corinnaflies.blogspot.com.br/2017/11/final-day-it-really-happened.html

I took off as the first pilot, waiting for the others, climbing out together and crossing the canyon plateau at the luxurious height of 1200m, about 600m above ground. Always a relief when it worked! Flying over to the next plateau at Lagoa Nova, the next big step, was not easy.

I was glad that Thalis and Marcelinho were with me, even though Thalis makes strange choices about his flying route sometimes. "Left, left!" he yelled into the radio. Ok, there was one cloud. But then? He didn't know, and didn't think about the next step.

Marcelinho found a strong lift, and we skyrocketed up to 1800m already. After that, I decided to go to some good looking clouds on the other side of the plateau, while the guys preferred another way. But we met again anyway, which was great. Until Apodi we flew together, but then the guys dropped me, as I missed one good climb and had to wait for another one to pick me up.

Oh well, another 3 hours of thermals, with 150 unknown km ahead of me. I will try my best! The landscape got a bit greener at times, but still hills. Luckily a few clouds left on my way, so I could head on.

About 30km before my goal, I realized that with the tailwind I could really make it on a last, big glide! When I finally arrived in Juatama, I could not believe it! Almost 9 hours of flying, my longest flight ever. After all the hardship of the three weeks before this day, I really made my goal on the last possible day!

Corinna's flight

The story

Corinna Schwiegershausen|record

https://www.redbull.com/br-pt/recorde-mundial-em-asa-delta-no-brasil

The translation here.

Corinna Schwiegershaunsen: I wanted to hit two records. One of them was the free distance, a 403.5 km mark that was to be surpassed by at least one kilometer. At the same time, I wanted to break the record we call the 'declared distance goal', in which the pilot previously declares a specific point wheres he will arrive. For this it needed to reach a predetermined point, 367 km from the takeoff. So if I could fly 405 km with a goal previously declared and homologated, I could overcome the two marks at once. This seemed like a good opportunity.

Using GPS coordinates, I had been trying to fly from Tacima, in Paraíba, to Juatama, which is the official landing for the Quixada ramp in Ceará. It ended up being a lot harder than I imagined and it took a long time to get there.

In fact it was my Brazilian friend, Marcelo Abbott, who suggested that I go to Tacima to try the world distance record, which had not been broken in 16 years. First I thought, "Will it?" I had never thought of doing anything like this, so he told me that some people had already performed flights larger than 400 km at that location. I thought about it calmly and thought maybe it might be a good idea. I booked four weeks for the attempts, to travel, to know the region and to prepare myself. It was not easy, but I got here and was able to fly with my friends.

Two new women's world records?

Two new women's world records?

Approximately 407 km

Corinna Schwiegershausen|Erick Vils|Kari Castle|PG|record|Yoko Isomoto

Preliminary report says that Corinna flew 407 km on Sunday, the 5th. This would be a new women's world record for straight line distance if it holds up. The distance is only approximate at the moment and close to the previous record of 403.5 km.  From Tacima, Paraiba, northern Brazil to Quixada, Ceará, Brazil. Eight plus hours of flying (not the 10.5 hours of flying that the paraglider pilots are doing there). She needs to exceed the previous record by 1 km.

The previous record: https://www.fai.org/records?f[0]=field_record_sport:2026&f[1]=field_record_category:1382&f[2]=field_subclass:229&f[3]=field_type_of_record:233

This flight was also to a declared goal (and it would be a new women's declared goal world record) of 405 km. Considering than she landed within five minutes of sundown that is pretty astounding.

http://corinnaflies.blogspot.de/2017/07/german-open-2nd-task-116-km-to-wellmitz.html

After three days of no taskable air, we finally celebrated blue skies again on Friday with a direct flight to Wellmitz. Getting ready early as I was 6th off in the start row, I had to get out of the harness again, because a cloud cover with some drops of rain pushed through before we could get airborne. After a pause of one hour, we finally started at around noon to tow.

In a wind gusting up to 35 km/h from the west (at least straight along the tow direction), I had a good take off, but a very difficult tow. I was glad when I pinned off and found a little bit of lift. I just wanted to stay in the air as long as possible and not land and tow again!

The other pilots from the top ten joined me soon in a little gaggle, drifting towards the northeast. Roland, Hans, Carolin, Bernd, Yeti, all with me. When we reached cloud base at around 1200m, I decided it's time to go on course, because I could already see a next cloud cover squall line moving in from the west. I'm not that fast, and I wanted to stay ahead of that. When I left on course line, I was surprised to not see anybody coming with me. I turned around a few times but no. We had an elapsed time start, and the guys went back to get a better time.

So I flew on my own, drifting in the strong wind, trying to pick the best cloud line. It worked well until Golssen, about 80km out, where the cumulus clouds started to dissipate and a cloud cover moved in. I crossed Schwielochsee and got really low, in front of some major forests. Spreewald, a huge rain forest, is famous for nice tours by boat, and for the Spreewald cucumbers, but not exactly for good thermals.

Just at the edge of a major forest area, I found a light lift at about 200m above ground. Of course, I drifted over the forest quite low. At least still in a light climb! Still I was relieved when I saw that I could make it to another landable field.

At about 25km before goal, two rigids caught up with me. One of them, much higher, flew towards goal. The other one, Carlos Puñet, only stayed slightly above me and was happy that I managed to find quite good lift for us that finally really took us to goal, where Dirk Ripkens was already waiting for us.

My friend Rebi had taken my parents on the long and complicated drive out to goal, always providing actual information from the live tracking of my height and position. I was super happy to see them arriving only 15 minutes after me at goal.

I had expected the leading gaggle to overtake me and to find a faster, better line, but I guess they had been caught in the shady air behind me. Only one other flex wing pilot, Jonas Willemeit from Berlin, and four rigid pilots made it to goal.

Ah yes, Japanese pilot Naoki Itagaki drifted past goal to the south. When he landed, he was very surprised that he found himself in Poland, not in Germany anymore! The friendly Polish people were even more surprised to find a man from Japan landing in their backyard, and they brought him sausage and drinks and celebrated his unexpected visit.

What a great surprise when I found out on the next day that most pilots had made half of the nominal distance, and I got my highest score in a mixed comp ever - 954 points, as the day winner. It also took me up to first place overall.

The wind was sporty with gusts up to 36kmh. The wind was from the west throughout the course line. A large shaded area with virga was nearby, then it dissipated quickly and the flexis started towing. The tows were sporty, but all pilots were hot to fly this second task after days of not flying.

The promised working heights up to 1,700m were never reached. Most pilots flew the course between 1,000-1,300m. The top pilots were able to come back in the start circle and restart their start times.

The pilots did not go in the direction of the Fläminger Höhenzug. Instead, they flew zigzagging across the forest. Often, the pilots crawled the entire flight at low altitudes. Lukas worked almost exclusively between 800-1,000m, but nevertheless flew far.

A large number of pilots made it to the Schwielochsee, after which it seemed to be painful. Ultimately, six pilots landed at the finish line. Two Flexis: Corinna Schwiegershausen and Jonas Willemeit. Four Rigid: Volkmar Kienöl, Dirk Ripkens, Tom Schreiner, Carlos Punet (Spain). Naoki Itagaki (Japan), however, made it to Wellmitz, but he dove further across the Oder River and found himself in Poland again.

It must be mentioned: the aerotow launches were faster than ever before. The tugs and helper team deserve great thanks for the experienced work. And amazingly, there was not a single weak link break today despite the violent gusts and turmoil and all landed safely.

Corinna in first:

80km Task, shady, tricky day. Slow start against a cross headwind. With Lukas who flew like a gentleman, Roland, Kajo, Hans and Yeti, I was in best company to do the out and return. Two hours there, 45 minutes back. Now the rain moves in for two days. Roland won the day ahead of Hans, Kajo Clauß, Yeti and me.

Confusion reigns in Brasilia as the Brazilians can't figure out pilots' gender or intentions. The list of entrants into the women's worlds includes Rohan Taylor, which I'm sure that he is not happy about, as well as three women who are registered for the Worlds, which the Brazilians appear to think are for men only.

So instead of seven pilots from five countries, which is what they thought that they had yesterday when they wrote to me and assumed that they would get an eighth very soon to make the women's worlds valid (did they just throw in Rohan?), they actually have four pilots (three from Japan) and two countries represented.

How do I get to the worlds?

How do I get to the worlds?

Oversized baggage

Corinna Schwiegershausen

Corinna Schwiegershausen tells us how:

Some information for all European pilots who are joining the worlds in Brasilia and who will take their gliders from Frankfurt on Lufthansa LH 500 to Rio. This is how you do it:

1. When you get your ticket on LH500, you contact Lufthansa reservations and you let them know that you will have oversized sporting equipment, a hang glider, and you give them the number and dimensions of the glider packages. The maximum weight per piece is 32kg, but the length when you check in in Frankfurt is NOT limited.

2. You pay 200€ per oversize piece of luggage per way. PS- if you get a ticket in Premium Economy class, you might get lucky and get an upgrade, because the Rio flights usually overbook in Economy, so they need to bump up the Premium Eco passengers! Also, in Premium Economy you have 2x23kg luggage allowance, in Eco it is only 1x23kg! But even with a Business Class ticket you need to pay extra for your oversized glider.

3. Get to the airport early, at least 4 hours before take off, so the gliders´ transport can be perfectly prepared. There will be several teams travelling between 31st of July and 4th of August. You can check your luggage in any time until 24hours before your take off time!

4. In Frankfurt, you go to Terminal 1, area B - you can park at departures 10 minutes for free, after that you have to pay. Take your gliders to the Lufthansa oversize luggage counter in area B, counter #445.

For check-in you need:

- your passport

- a printout of the confirmation that you paid 200€ and that your glider has been listed/registered for your flights

5. When you arrive in Rio, your glider will be delivered next to the luggage belt of your flight.

6. RENT A CAR in Rio to drive to Brasilia! Our Lufthansa station manager of Rio urged me to tell all pilots that you can´t take your gliders on inland flights within Brazil anymore! No regional airlines will take oversized luggage!

2017 Women's World Championship

Otherwise known as the Women's Sport Class Championship

Corinna Schwiegershausen «Corinna Schwiegershausen» writes:

Corinna Schwiegershausen

Please understand that I want to do everything I can to make a women's title possible, because it is important to me to promote and support more women into our great sport of hang gliding.

From this whole conversation, it seems to me that CIVL does not want to change the status quo of holding a separate competition for the hopefully eight women we might get for the worlds in Brasilia. I still see a great conflict there. The following points seem discriminating to me:

1. I have worked many years to become part of my open national team to fly the open worlds and be able to score for my team and score high in the world ranking, thus being more likely to qualify for my open team again to be able to compete at European and World Championships.

2. It is important for me and my sponsor that I am able to compete for my gender title, aka the women's world champion title.

3. It has not been my fault or intention that the open and women's world championships collide in time as separate, individual competitions - this has never happened before in the history of hang gliding or paragliding, and it is impossible to see the advantage of why it should be happening now in Brasilia for the first time.

4. The top 50% of the women's world ranking can be nominated for their open national team and have to choose between flying for their gender title OR being able to score for their national team and for high points in the world ranking, thus improving their chance to qualify for their worlds team again, motivating other girls by seeing that it is possible (and returning possible points for their team as a return for their NAC's support to join the world championships)

5. In my, Françoise's, Claudia's and Sasha's case, you are cutting out qualified team pilots of scoring for our national teams if we try to make a women's world title possible and decide to fly in the women's competition - in this way, a fair team competition according to the Sporting Code Section 7 is not possible, because the French, Russian, Colombian and German teams are disadvantaged by possibly loosing one of their top scoring pilots.

6. Imagine that you make the top 50% of the male pilots choose between flying for their gender world champion title OR being able to score for their national team and for their individual world ranking, thus qualification for the next world's team - do you agree that there would be a huge irritation, possibly a protest of the guys? This is what you are doing to the top performers of the women. Yes, we are a minority and not as loud as the guys, but we do exist. And the majority of the women concerned had not been asked or involved before a decision had been made at the meeting in Salzburg.

For sure I see your point that you wanted to motivate more women into flying competitions and qualifying for the worlds. I appreciate yours and Jamie's work a lot, and I think we all need to stick together much closer with ideas how to make this possible. Just for Brasilia, it is a different situation altogether, cause most girls can only do this big trip with support by their NAC. The NACs see the greatest value of us girls if we can score for our national teams as well, in case we have the open and women's worlds at the same time.

Please reconsider your decision of making smaller, separate tasks for the 8 women that we hopefully might be, and instead allow us to fly in the open world championships as in Forbes and as in paragliding competitions, enabling us to score world ranking points, to score for our teams if we managed to get nominated, and still have a well deserved women's world champion title in the end of what is going to be a tough marathon competition.

Stef-CIVL «Stef-CIVL» writes:

It is a no win situation. If we agree with you, some women will not go and we might fall short of the 8+4. If we don’t, some women will fly with the Overall so Women and we might fall short of the 8+4. This has been discussed at length, CIVL has made its choice and will not change the rules agreed by its Plenary.

Sure there is a win win answer to this. It's just that Stephane wants to stick with a poor decision.

1) Let national teams include six national team pilots plus allow up to two women per team in addition to the national team members.

2) All women in the competition are flying for the women's world championship.

3) The two additional women per team are flying for the overall championship as well as for the women's world championship. They are not flying for the team championship.

2017 Women's Worlds »

Only fourteen women in the world qualify for flying in the Worlds

CIVL|Corinna Schwiegershausen|Davis Straub|Facebook|Women's Worlds 2017

It is from this pool of fourteen that we have to choose the women's world champion. You qualify to fly in a category 1 competition (those controlled by CIVL) if you place in the top two thirds of a category 2 competition (those controlled by each country's recreational aeronautical association). Of course, the women have to compete against men in order to obtain this qualification.

It is possible to get an exemption to attend a category 1 competition, but CIVL hates giving out these exemption (that go almost exclusively to women) and it is almost impossible to get an second exemption (once you've had one, you are supposed to get yourself qualified).

Say eight women from four countries show up at the women's worlds in Brasilia. If all eight fly in the women's worlds then there will be a women's world champion. If two of them are on their national team, and they decide to fly in the open world championship there won't be enough pilots flying in the women's worlds and it will be cancelled. There will not be a women's world champion decided.

The six women left over can then fly in the open world championship. It would be cruel to send them home even if they didn't qualify for the open world championship by being on their national team (or teams). But even though there are now eight women from four countries flying in the open world championship there will not be a women's world champion. It will not be given out to the highest ranked woman in the open world championship.

Now say enough women (out of the fourteen and any exempted ones) show up from four countries to make the women's world championship valid, i.e. it will be used to choose the women's world champion, without the women who have qualified to fly in the open world championship. That means that the women who choose to fly in the open, the most qualified women because they have made their national team, will not be eligible to become the next women's world champion.

This makes sense?

If only fourteen female pilots have met the CIVL qualifications required to attend the meet, perhaps they are the ones that should decide if there is a separate women's worlds in Brasilia or the women are combined with the men in the open world championships. Could it hurt to find out?

What World Championship will the women be going to in Brasilia?

What World Championship will the women be going to in Brasilia?

If less than eight show up, there won't be a Women's Worlds

Chisato Nojiri|CIVL|Corinna Schwiegershausen|Jamie Shelden|Niki Longshore|Yoko Isomoto

http://ozreport.com/21.55#3

Right now if you want to go to the 2017 Women's Worlds in Brasilia you don't know if there will even be one. That requires at least eight women pilots from four different countries. At the last Women's Worlds in Annecy, France, there were twenty one women. But that is Europe, and the cost of getting to Annecy for European women is pretty small. Nothing like making it to Brasilia.

CIVL is very worried that there won't be enough women who want to go and can afford to go to Brasilia to make for an actual Women's Worlds. So right now women could be registering for a competition that won't exist. Not exactly a preferred situation.

If there was only one worlds in Brasilia in August and women were allowed to enter under a 6+1 or 6+2 arrangement, then this uncertainty would go away. Women would have a competition that was definitely happening and if eight women or more from four countries signed up, then a new Women's World Champion would be crowned.

Here are some responses I got to my article about the Women's Worlds linked to above:

Jamie Shelden writes:

CIVL delegates from several countries, including the UK, Germany, Russia, Japan and France were at the CIVL HG committee meeting in February and actively involved in this discussion and decision. I mention these specific countries because these are ones that have female competition pilots that could potentially be chosen for their national (“open”) teams. The delegates from the UK and Germany confirmed that their female pilots would not be chosen for the open team. Francoise, from France, is one that I have heard could be chosen for her national open team. However, the French delegate was at the hang gliding committee meeting and participated in the discussion. He never mentioned that Francoise could be chosen (I don’t know if that was just rumor that I heard or if it is a real possibility) and he voted for the current plan. The Japanese delegate was also actively involved in the committee discussion and also agreed with the current plan. He never mentioned any possibility that any of the female pilots in Japan could potentially be nominated for their national open team.

Sasha is one of the most active proponents of having completely separate women’s worlds, with entirely different starts, tasks, etc. She argued vehemently for this when CIVL had an open meeting of pilots in Krushevo last summer. So, I know this is not a problem for her. I have also heard that she does not intend to compete (either way) in Brasilia.

The bottom line is that I don’t believe this is an issue anyway. Something could change, but my understanding is that there will not likely be 8 women in Brasilia. I have heard that the Japanese will send 2, 1 will come from Germany, 1 from France, 1 from the UK and possible 1 or 2 from the US. So, if 7 women register, they will all be given special treatment and will fly the “open” task with everyone else. If 8 women register, potentially one woman will have to choose. It would be interesting to hear from the French that is a possible issue.

Alexandra, Sasha, <<multikss>> writes:

Lately there was an open letter published which proposed changing the local regulations of the Worlds in Brasilia in a way that women would fly and score together with men. According to this suggestion the Women title would have been given to the female scored the highest in the general list.

Since this letter seemed to open a discussion and get some public attention, I would like to step in and express an alternative opinion on the subject.

My opinion is that having separate tasks for women is better than having the same ones with men. It allows fair competition between women, which is necessary condition for defining the new world female champion. Indeed we have to separate two things -- General Worlds and Women Worlds from each other. In my opinion women would rather need to focus on what they really want to do -- to compete for their national team together with men in order to try wining the World Champion Title or to compete for the Women World Champion Title. I think sitting on two chairs and trying to do all at the same time hurts both ideas, especially it deprives Women Hang Gliding from being taken seriously.

It could be seen in Forbes Worlds that flying the same task with men instantly brings up the opportunity of being helped on the radio by the other male members of the team, which I find un-sporty.

Most of the time in a mixed task women are not in the front rows, so they resort to "follow-up and hang-on" strategy which drifts them off from their own decision making. I strongly believe that we want to define not the best follower but the best leader as a female world champion.

So if choosing from the current option of having separate tasks and the joined task suggested, I would personally stay with what I see is fair, that is the first one.

In addition to said above I'd like to mention a couple more things. My seeing is that the idea of having both male and female Worlds at the same time actually hurts already rather weak attention to female hang gliding. If CIVL has an intention to bring more women in sport by attracting the public to follow the women's competitions, then it would have more significant effect if the competition took place at different from the general World's time. This way it would be taken as a standing alone event. I understand that this option causes a lot problems, such as a need to run the whole Brazilian event for longer time, which is more expensive. For the national federations it would also make additional hassle like for instance organizing the retrieve. But unfortunately the situation in hang gliding is so, that women are presented as a disproportional minority. Minorities in sports inevitably cause more expenses for all sides. That is why it is so important to try to get more women into the sport, rather than mixing them up with men during the Worlds.

It is not a secret that the flying style in FAI-1 comps differs from rather relaxed events of cat. 2. A big part of potential female participants will be discouraged from participating in the FAI-1 competition when they have to stage and fly together with a hundred rather aggressive men.

I understand that nowadays it is very unlikely to make separate women worlds, when we basically see more and more of our female pilots dropping off comps, but essentially these are the points to consider in the future if we want more attention for this part of the sport.

I wrote back to her:

I find it very interesting that we agree. I think that everyone agrees that it would be much better to have a separate women’s championship. The problem is with Brasilia only and the fact that the two competitions present a conflict.

Given that there is going to be a world championship in Brasilia, then it should be one championship to get rid of the conflict.

Corinna Schwiegershausen <<corinna>> writes:

Davis stated: 1) Mostly men making decisions for women.

Davis is right here. Just for your understanding - not even the top 5 women, including me, had been asked and given the pro and contra arguments before this "vote" at the meeting in Salzburg had been made. Françoise had no idea about this decision, neither did Yoko or Chisato when I asked them. The only ones of the whole female world ranking that might have known about this vote and its result were Kathleen, because her husband Gordon was in the meeting, and Jamie of course.

Why were there not more female voices to be heard and seen at the meeting in Salzburg? Well, I would have come immediately and at my own costs, had I been invited to join this meeting that concerns our female hang gliding world! I have actually made the effort to contact and talk to Françoise, Yoko, Chisato and Sasha, I didn´t get an answer from Kathleen or Claudia, but I also talked to Niki Longshore. I talked to the women who are most likely to join the Worlds in Brasilia, which are the ones this topic concerns, and who should have had a voice in this process I think.

To me, this vote seems to have been a faulty process, taking place over the head of these hopefully 8 or 9 women who are concerned, and who could be affected in a very negative way by this decision. It should be revised and a new vote taken by the women concerned, the ones that will compete in Brasilia.

We want to motivate the rest of the flying girls by showing that if you are focused and dedicated, if you keep flying and learning, you can fly the same tasks like the guys, and you can win an overall task in an international comp like Sasha just did in Australia, that you can in fact even rank 15th overall in an open worlds, like I did in Big Spring. It is important that women show up in the top 100 in the world ranking - but if you artificially cut out the ones who are most likely to get there (Françoise, Sasha, Yoko, Chisato and me) by forcing us to decide between either flying a women’s worlds without gaining sustainable world ranking points, or flying in the open with our team (that we are qualified and by our NAC nominated for), thus having the opportunity to score high points in the highest scoring comp in the world, it might probably destroy the possibility to get a valid new women´s world champion, which is also important in our sport!

Jamie said: I seems to me that Corinna wants women to have special treatment at competitions.

Françoise, Sasha and me are nominated by our NACs into the national team of 6, but if you want to put it like that, yes in fact I am asking for a special treatment for the other 5 or 6 women who are likely to compete in Brasilia and eligible to fly a women's worlds, to be allowed to compete in the overall worlds as well, so all of them can score good world ranking points, move up and be "more visible" to the rest of the world - to get into the guys´ heads that women can actually fly, sometimes even quite well. From a safety and endurance point of view, the 8 or 9 women I know of who are likely to join are all able to safely fly with the guys in Brasilia, as most of us have done that for years.

Further on, Jamie states: Encouraging women to compete is better accomplished by working on the women that aren't already competing at the level Corinna is. We don't need to encourage the Corinnas, Francoises and Kathleens of the hang gliding scene, we need to encourage less experienced women to compete - those very women who are NOT planning to come to Brasilia. Combining the events will not encourage those women, it will only satisfy the few that are not in need of encouragement.

But maybe even the Corinnas, Françoises and Kathleens need an encouragement to see what all their investment into our sport is good for? And I'm not just talking about around 6000€ that it costs everyone of us (from Europe) to go and compete at the Worlds in Brasilia, or around 10000€ a year (maybe more for the ones who don't fly on standby…) to keep our gear up to date and going to international competitions, but also about our voluntary, idealistic investment.

Keep in mind that by the current decision on local regulations for Brasilia, CIVL is not just "not encouraging" three of the women who dedicate most time, means and idealism to get into their open national team, but in fact CIVL is PUNISHING us three! Us three hardest, but the other 5 or 6 pretty hard as well. I know you want to do this to help the sport, but in this particular case of Brasilia, you could unfortunately reach the opposite.

I have not only been considering and talking to the top 10 women in the sport, but as you might remember from Monte Cucco and Tegelberg, Jamie, I have always been happy to pull other women along, share sponsorship, and in fact organize several training camps. I have worked voluntarily at the "Ladies Challenge," an international comp in Greifenburg, organized by DHV to support women to fly safer and better in competitions. As I have done this volunteer work for about 15 years now, in fact I know quite a few of the "vast majority" of the world ranking list that you like to talk about. Let's face it - at the moment, only 14 women in the world would be eligible to fly at a women's worlds without exemption, that's why I would like a decision for Brasilia to be made by the women who really are concerned - the ones who will go and compete! Just for this competition.

Apparently CIVL is unmoved by these arguments.

The most special thing about flying in Brasilia is the Esplanade goal field. A perfect 118km task finally brought us back here to the city today. There’s nothing more exciting that watching the lead gaggle come across the tops of the tall buildings and set up an approach in what is basically a park between the two directions of traffic – four lanes each on both sides. The field seems pretty big when you see it empty. But with twelve gliders setting up to land, especially in light and variable conditions, it quickly shrinks.

Olav Opsanger and Jonny Durand came in pretty close (with Olav first), even setting up and landing together. Another ten or so came in one after the other behind them in the first gaggle.

Tom, who is in first overall as of yesterday arrived with half of his battens tips broken and sticking 4 or 5 inches out of their pockets. Apparently he inadvertently did what he called a “½ loop” in air so strong and turbulent that he thought he would tumble. He pulled out of it at high speed and his carbon basebar slammed him in the throat while the batten tips were busy breaking off. All that fun, and he believes he may have unintentionally violated the airspace as well, in a climb late in the task that he just couldn’t get out of in time. It’s really going to mix things up if he gets a zero for the day.

Wolfi high 15 minutes before the start.

Had a bit of bummer today. Was sitting in 13th place in the pre worlds here in Brazil, but I think I might drop quiet a few positions after I accidentally breached the 9000ft ceiling. (Which can be very hard to stay under while flying in such strong conditions!) And then I miss judged the final glide into the city and had to land in someone's backyard on the lake 3km short of goal. At least I got to have swim while waiting for a ride.

Let's see. I don't see any Live Tracking. This despite the fact that the other top Brazilian competitions were on Airtribune (https://airtribune.com/brazil-hg2016-1/results). 

The English translate button (on the upper right) doesn't work. I used Google Translate.

The links at the bottom of the page aren't live.

If a competition was held in Brasilia would anyone know or care?

Practice day Saturday, competition actually starts on Sunday (or so I think). My only reporter (through her posts on Facebook) so far is Corinna. She's sending out photos also.

Betinho actually paid for an ad in the Oz Report (thanks) that takes you to their web site, but then where is the follow up? In these times we expect more. Especially from a pre-Worlds or Worlds.

US pilots there (they say):

USA Barry Klein
USA Bruce Barmakian

USA Noah Briller
USA Patrick Pannese

I've never heard of Barry Klein or Noah Briller. Very few top pilots on this list: http://www.brasilia2017.com.br/pilotos/. Doesn't even include Jonny Durand, and I assume that he is going to fly.

Landed only half way to the 109km goal, but thanks to Nils Vesk and Craig Taylor, I'm quite comfortable with strong wind take offs and landings. It was a howling 30km/h (and maybe in gusts even more where I landed) on launch today, not easy to fly for a light girl, but I'm thankful for great support from my team mates Eduardo Jacintho W Oliveira and Marcelinho. So much to learn here! It just looks like Forbes with more hills, but it isn't quite the same. Still spectacular, beautiful country and lovely people!

No Flying in Rio

We are a security threat

Corinna Schwiegershausen

Corinna Schwiegershausen writes:

All flying is banned for about six weeks during the Olympics and Paralympics in Rio. Many tandem pilots depend on their income of the flights, and there is no compensation of course (this is Brazil). A scandal I think, just another one, but it hits our sport, and our friends!

I had planned to be there and introduce some of the athletes to tandem flights after their competitions, but there are no exceptions.

"Safety and security reasons". Ridiculous.

Whenever I was in Rio in August, the inversion was so strong that the temperature on take off was 4 degrees C higher than on the beach, so definitely no chance to get anywhere close to any of the Olympic venues.

But maybe they are afraid we the non-motorized pilots might be in the way of all the helicopters that will take the executives and officials from one place to the other to avoid the traffic chaos and the other hazards of the city, really sad, if not sick.

Getting ⁢Yoko⁣ back to Japan

Sat, Jun 11 2016, 9:35:29 pm MDT

Corinna comes to the rescue

April Mackin|Belinda Boulter|Corinna Schwiegershausen|Yoko Isomoto

Belinda writes:

It's been so wonderful to see the love and support for Yoko Isomoto during her last weeks in the hospital, after a hang glider crash in Florida resulted in a broken pelvis. She has really appreciated the messages and visits that have helped her forget the pain while she recovers in a strange country (her first visit to the U.S.). April Mackin and the hospital social worker Candace Snyder have been working hard to find a way to get Yoko home safely - but interaction between the hospital and the travel insurance company has been difficult and frustrating.

Then Corinna Schwiegershausen wrote to me that she wanted to visit Yoko, asking for her details. When I told Corinna that we were stumped about how to get Yoko home, Corinna sprang into action. She first called Ecky the German team's official doctor, then she called the insurance company in Denmark. A big part of that problem was that Candace was not allowed to make international calls, and given the time difference it was hard to get a meaningful response. Given Yoko's condition and pain, she clearly needed to be accompanied during her whole journey, by someone who knew how to care for her. Corinna managed to cut through all that red tape and find a solution.

The arrangements were completed this morning. Corinna will be flying from Munich to Orlando on Tuesday. On Wednesday she will pick up Yoko from the hospital, take her to the airport, get her settled on a Lufthansa plane in a business class bed, keep Yoko company on the flights to Osaka via Frankfurt (making sure she gets Lufthansa's special attention and TLC), and make sure that Yoko gets to her Japanese rehab facility in the Osaka area. Corinna can do this because she is a Lufthansa flight attendant with plenty of seniority, and because she otherwise wouldn't be flying that week (in other words, she's using her vacation time).

Yoko is so happy that she will have the company of another female hang glider pilot during this difficult journey. And right this minute Corinna looks a lot like Wonder Woman to me :-).

We have a special flying community, where strong competitors are also strong and generous supporters of one another. I'm so grateful to be a small part. Thanks to all of Yoko's friends, and to all of you who help each other in times of need.

We are still working on getting her settled in Japan and into the orthopedic hospital in the town where she lives. The hospital claims that it is full and can't take her. We are writing to people in Japan to help get this worked out.

Twenty one pilots made it to goal. Twenty one got minimum distance - 5 km. It was a fully valid day. There were nine start times. Paris took an earlier start time and got the most arrival time points but a hundred less speed points than Attila. Paris is a very fast pilot. This could be showing that it doesn't make a lot of sense to go out early on your own.

The average distance flown was 35 kilometers. With a nominal distance of 40 kilometers this is still long enough to make the distance validity 100%. Launch validity was 96% given that so many people who didn't fly. Only 45 of the 51 pilots on launch flew, 88%. Nominal launch validity was defaulted at 96%, i.e. if 96% of the pilots launched the launch validity would be 100%. Hang glider pilots have not used this variable before.

Well this is a surprise. At the Canungra Classic. At the competition that is flying from the Durand's launch, they are using OzGAP 2005 (maybe they don't even know this) and there are no leading points. There are no leading points for pilots who don't make goal. They may think that they are using GAP 2011, but that is just a label that signifies nothing. They are using OzGAP 2005. Arrival time points (that is special arrival time points) that are equal - approximately - to the sum of Leading Points and Arrival Position Points.

This is extremely amusing to me who has gone through so many "discussions" with Jonny and others regarding these scoring formulas.

You'll also note that Paris (now living in New Zealand but apparently still flying for the US) is no longer flying the Ukrainian Aeros glider, but an Australian-made Moyes.

http://chgc.asn.au.143us.blankserver.com/CanungraClassic.aspx

It wasn't a 1000 point day because the nominal time is an hour and a half and Steve got to the goal in an hour and twenty one minutes. The average distance flown was 41 km, and with the nominal distance set at a sport class or weak site 40 km, that was more than enough to have the distance validity equal to 1. Given that we assume an average speed of 40 km/h with an hour and a half nominal time you might expect the nominal distance to be at least 60 km.

But what do I know? I'm not there.

Once again leading and arrival position points are just stand ins for time or speed points. All these pilots that made goal started at the same time. The pilots that didn't make goal and did get some leading points, got very few leading points. Certainly nothing that would have encouraged them to actually lead.

Thomas Weissenberger <<thomas.weissenberger01>> writes:

To all our fun we are having here I did not expect that it is getting that funny!

Well, I cannot remember being ever hired for some cross country flying – especially with a friend and Moyes colleague – but I do know that I followed Kathleen's record attempts in Oz last winter. Due to bad weather luck it did not come to a happy ending, sadly!

I also know how much effort, pre-preparation, time and energy you have to invest in such a project. I also know how it feels when it does not work out first time. Hard to express but let's call it disappointment.

Having a high appreciation for pilots like this who try to push their personal limits I also have deepest respect to Kathleen as a mother, hard working woman and a competition and cross country-pilot as well as even taking the energy to fly world records – WOW!

So after giving these facts in a quite simple way which are actually way more complex than just writing them up in a few lines, I invited Kathleen to get some big cross country flying here at my place in Austria which is not that much effort as going to Oz from Europe. And as a cool flying adventure my intentions were to show her this exciting flying over alpine peaks, lakes and glaciers. Everything else like FAI records, which are just a written paper in black and white, will be just a bonus then.

Anyway, these paper lists can never keep up to such a beautiful life experience shining in all colours when your own dreams suddenly come true! After all it comes back to the real meanings in life: good friendship, good teamwork and last but not least sharing a good time together! Thank you all who joined our joy of cross country flying and all your congratulations worldwide!

Good flying to you Corinna and all you motivated female pilots out there! I hope to hear about further cross country flights and to see great pictures to support our beautiful and privileged sport!

Concerning Kathleen Rigg´s world record, it's a great new concept. She hired Tom Weissenberger to fly her around the course, find the thermals, show her the crossings, wait for her and lead her as supporter in the air. Official observer as an official wind tech. Amazing that on a good day like this, the average speed still wasn’t faster, because Tom usually races 300km in the same amount of time.

There were quite a few pilots who wondered why Tom kept waiting for that other pilot.

Zac writes:

1 on 1 match racing above São Conrado, and I've advance to the 2nd round. Many of Brasil's best are here, as are world ranked #1 Christian Ciech, and Corinna.

Corinna writes:

Just flew the first round of Rio Verao Aventura competition. Had to fly against Konrad Heilmann, local tandem pilot, winner of wings over Wellington. He decided to fly for time. I managed the turnpoints, so I think I got one round ahead if I understood the rules right. Christian Ciech put 400m radius instead of 100m, so he is out already. Tomorrow the next round!

The weather forecast looked much nicer for today, and it turned out to be a good Beechmont day. Finally we got to fly with a few clouds here and there, some convergence and also "real thermals" - it's just so pleasant if you can fly a full 360 in climb! All the way up to 2000m, it was such a luxury.
