The Ozone Chelan Open
The 2021 Ozone Chelan Open is wrapped after 4 amazing tasks.
This was an EN-C and below event with mentoring from some of the top comp pilots in the USA. Each day Nick Greece, Josh Cohn, Mitch Riley and Matthew Henzi, shared their knowledge, experience, and advice on how to fly the tasks better.
The overall winner was Mitch Riley, flying his Alpina 4, followed by Josh Cohn (Alpina 4), and Nick Greece (Delta 4) in third.
In the ladies category the winner was Galen Kirkpatrick followed by Alexia Fischer (Delta 3) and Anneka Herndon (Alpina 4).
Ozone Team Pilot and overall winner, Mitch Riley, reports:
“Racing the Alpina 4 around the skies of Eastern Washington for the last week was a blast!! Thanks to OZONE Paragliders and meet director Matt Senior and all the volunteers for putting on this mentoring comp. Many people have asked me how it felt to race on an EN C wing. The racing, the decisions, and the excitement felt just like racing any paraglider. I’ll be back next year! The performance of the Alpina 4/Delta 4 speaks for itself; winning every task and filling the podium, the glider goes well!!”
