Ric Womersley Wins British Championships!
2021 British Open Paramotor Championships took place in Winglands Airfield, Lincolnshire on 8th – 10th July
13 Pilots competed in the championship class with a further 7 more competing in the discovery class designed as a stepping stone into competition.
Ric Womersley won the 2021 Champion title flying the Speedster 3
Ric reports: “The British Open Paramotor Championships follows an endurance format where tasks are briefed at the start of the competition and then we have flying windows throughout to complete as many of these tasks as possible.
We had a total of 14 hours of flying windows plus a limited fuel FAI triangle task, 4 spot landings and 4 skittle landings.
With 16 hours of competition flying over 3 days, this was definitely the most flying I have done in any one competition. Flying throughout the day in some very active skies the Speedster 3 performed impeccably. Its speed and stability allowed me to focus on completing as many tasks as possible, covering over 600 km during the competition. The Speedster’s precise handling and incredible glide meant I hit every spot and scored on all of the skittle landing tasks which also won me the precision trophy”
Congratulations from all Ozone Team!
