Peter Wins Serial, 3rd Overall
At the Polish and Lithuanian open, Peter Vyparina took first place serial and 3rd overall, flying his Ozone Alpina. As anyone who has flown in a national comp knows, this is not an easy thing to do. Peter reports:
“It was good level comp, we flew 4 valid tasks (optimized: 86,9km, 85,5km, 87,8km, 78,6km) with 137 pilots and more than 50 EN D gliders (more than 40 High EN D). I had no chance to fly with the lead gaggle, but i was able to control my position (always 5th15th, 2-7 min after first pilots in goal). Primož Suša flew a really great comp, he was 95% leading in all tasks – good job!. A few pilots from the top 10 got a penalty for breaking airspace… if they had no penalty, my position in overall could be a couple spots lower, so I had a bit of luck. Alpina 2 is great wing, easy to fly, with perfect and precise handling and amazing performance on full bar. But the strongest attribute of Alpina 2 is its perfect feeling of air, which you can find only in some good EN D gliders. These things together helped me a lot to fly in front.”
Nice work Peter, congrats!
Cheers, from all the Team.
