“Despite fairly overcast skies this morning, a 92 km corridor task was set. Today’s task setting was once again excellent with pilots spread out all along the optimum route.

The conditions got better and better as cloud base lifted, although for a lot of pilots, today was summed up as ‘too low, too slow.’ It was a very bumpy day with thermals which didn’’t go straight up. In the second part of the race the thermals were very weak. Marco Busetta (ITA) took a different line and tagged the fifth turn point much further north than everyone else on his own. He got a lot of height and was then unbeatable as he crossed the ESS, the other pilots were still on their way to the fifth turn point. Marco took the lead just after the fifth turn point. He got to goal 13 minutes ahead of everyone else with 100% of the available lead-out points, rather a crushing victory, leading to a discard day for many.

99 pilots made goal with the fastest average speed round being 35 km/h”

With one more day to go Joachim Oberhauser (ITA) and Meryl Delferriere (FRA) are leading the race.

And the top 3 nations are: 1st ITALY, 2nd FRANCE, 3rd JAPAN .

“Today started off with 95% cloud cover and not much hope of a task.

The most important part of today’s 65 km task was a concentric circle around the best thermals in the plains avoiding the cloud development in the mountains. Those arriving in the middle later had the choice to either follow those going west or do something different and go east. They had already lost out on the lead out points, so it didn’t matter that they were against the wind, going slower, not getting as many lead out points. However, going east did seem to be the fastest route. By the time 149 pilots had gone through the concentric circle, all points of the compass had been tried and we had surprisingly good conditions in the second half of the day. What should have been a straight line to ESS even ended up with different route options”

The winner of task 8 was Ferdinand Vogel (GER) followed by Jurij Vidic (SLO) in second.
Ozone Team pilot, Meryl Delferriere @meryldelferriere (FRA) not only won his fifth task in the Women’s category but also finished in third place overall.

Ozone team pilot, Francis Reina @francis.reina , aka “El Niño”, took the win at the two most recent XC comps in Spain.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
His first victory was the Spanish XC Championship in Zarza Capilla, a spectacular XC site with great conditions during the event. Francis won all three days with flights of 281, 174 and 171 kms respectively.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From there, El Niño continued to choose the right lines, winning the last stop of the Spanish Championship in Arangoiti. Due to bad weather the event was relocated to Castejón de Sos for the final tasks.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Francis reports:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“The conditions in Castejón were incredible, rising to 5000 meters in the Pyrenees and flying at a very high average speed. I won the first task in Arangoiti and the third task in Castejón and in the end I took the win again!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Francisco is now in Macedonia representing the Spanish team, together with Ozone team pilots Felixin Rodriguez @feliximbol and Xevi Bonet @xevi.bonet. They are currently in third place, but only a few points behind the leaders.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Congrats Francis and Cheers from all the Ozone Team.

“Another blue day dawned. A 98 km task was set taking the pilots on a tour of the plains with mountain options.

The mountain option was the most popular choice to the first turn point then it was a fast race out in the flats with top speeds of over 80 km/h. Unfortunately, the final glide put paid to a lot of pilots hopes of consolidating their overall top ten place with only four of the top ten this morning making goal. As Mitch Riley @mitchintheair explained, ‘Every day pilots have been cutting it really fine then getting a climb near ESS if they needed it. Today they made the same calculation but there was more north east wind low down than all along the course, so their glide was much worse than they expected. So those who realised this soonest and stopped to climb got to goal.’ 95 pilots made goal and a further 34 very nearly made goal. The average speed of the fastest pilot was 38km/h”

Wednesday is rest day, The 16th FAI Wold Paragliding Championship will be back on Thursday.

"Today the task committee has been trying to split up the supergaggle and make a more challenging task.  Success!  A 130 km task with a massive exit cylinder allowed pilots to take the mountains on either side of the valley, take the flats, or choose a combination of the above.  Stable conditions, climbs rarely over 2,000m and 30+kmh of south wind on course, made for challenging flying.  Two thirds of the pilots landed before the half way mark, and zero pilots made goal.  5 pilots flew till task closed, and as of this writing it looks like Petra Silvova won the day.  Well done Petra!  Thanks for the challenge task committee!  We are past the half way mark in the comp, and I find myself filled with joyous anticipation of 4 more tasks in this amazing place with these spectacular pilots."

Task 5-FAI Paragliding Worlds, Krushevo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"With a totally blue day and a bit more wind than previous days, a downwind task was on the menu. A 99km corridor task was set crisscrossing the plains, giving route choices, risking the flats before they started working properly or head for the longer, surer mountain route. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today was a difficult, tactical task but once again it was amazing to see how easy the gaggle made this task look. We saw the gaggles spread out much more than in previous tasks. But somethings never change, Honorin Hamard @honoflywithme was once again first across End of Speed today and taking into consideration the lead out points, this gave him his third task win of the competition, first equal with Tilen Ceglar who has won two tasks in the competition so far"

Task 4-FAI Paragliding Worlds, Krushevo. A 112 km task was set zig zagging south, with a great mix of flats and mountains.

The first part of the race took the pilots over the hills to Baba Mountain before heading out into the flats. Clouds were scarce so it was a day of cloud hoping the few that were available with super, smooth, thermals. The last part of the race gave different options, but as big blue holes opened up to the west of the course line, racing down the flats was the best option.

Well done to the 124 pilots who made goal in today’s marathon.
Today’’s fastest average speed round the course was 34 km/h.

Julien Wirtz (FRA) was the winner of the task followed by Ozone’s Felix Rodriguez (ESP) @feliximbol in second and Gleb Sukhotskiy (RUS) in third.
Keiko Hiraki (JPN) was the winner of the Women’s category. All flying Enzo 3s.
