2015 Gliding Nationals

The SA model gliding Nationals took place over the May Day week end 1, 2 & 3 May.
The format this year was changed to have single disciplines dedicated to a day, as opposed to the older format of mixed disciplines. This was done to accomodate pilots that only fly one or two disciplines, not having to be present the whole week end.

Friday the 1st - wind prediction was downwind till 11h00, so it was agreed to hold the AGM in the morning and wait for the wind direction to change.

At 11h00 F3J open duration off 150m winch lines commenced and by 15h00 6 rounds with one discard were flown

Congratulations to all the winners and to those that made the effort to come out and compete. There were many new faces and I hope this renewed interest in the nationals will breath new life into model gliding in South Africa.
