Die Ozone Chabre Open 2017 sind nach einer schönen Woche, die viel Spaß gemacht hat, und mit Kameradschaftsgeist rund um die Fliegerei beseelt war, zu Ende gegangen. Das Chabre Vol Libre Team berichtet aus Südfrankreich:

„The 12th Ozone Chabre Open finished on a high after five tasks in beautiful conditions. Surely, one of the best we’ve had. Even the windy first two days allowed pilots to free fly at St Jean Monclar and St Vincent Les Forts. The competition hotted up over the next five days, as did the weather, and the fifth task gave rise to a few upsets in the final rankings.

Task setting, briefings and de-briefings were led by the inimitable Jocky Sanderson, who was a star, as usual. Jocky’s skill and experience in cross country flying, SIV, safety and training, his enthusiasm to help pilots improve and his animated briefings and de-briefings truly make the competition the best learning environment for any budding XC or competition pilot, and provides great entertainment for us all.

Loads of prizes were handed out, courtesy of Ozone and Cross Country Magazine. All of the winners got an Ozone rucksack full of goodies!
After the meal, the prize draw: Soooo many prizes. This year’s Ozone glider winner was Karl Ford, he was fabulously happy!
We had a new band playing for the party: Niall Mooney (with a slightly Irish bent), who got the party swinging well into the night”

Den Gesamtsieg holte sich Martin Long mit seinem Delta 2, gefolgt von Grant Oseland und Mathias Schmeisser.

Bei den Damen siegte Natalia Shoutova, gefolgt von Marjon Ackerman und Abeltje Tromp.
