Import from old blog

Algodonales, Spain
Yesterday was not so good for me, got away early, too early as I landed after the first TP. Nils Åge got to goal, Olav and Erik B half way. Still we got over 2000 meter for the fist time in this comp.

Today was an eventful day, first the car was broken into last night, the car was empty anyway so nothing was missing exept Erik V’s dirty old windbreaker. At take off Erik found a broken webbing int the heart section of his glider after replacing a broken upright (again :-)). Then Christof Kratzner from Germany tucked and broke his ATOS in the air, he got out the chute and came down OK. I was flying over, and watched the whole decent. It was not a pretty sight. On the road to the HQ in La Muela there was lots of police and a dead paraglider pilot in the road. He was killed under landing.
Nils Åge made goal again today, he’s now at 9. place total. I flew better today, and landed near TP 2 after a long and difficult flight. Got a few low saves but could not reach the hill to soar up over the second TP. Robin and Olav also landed near the seond TP. Both Erik’s had broken hanggliders and could not fly, both are OK now and ready for tomorrow. I hope for a short task, as days are long. It’s 2 AM now, and we just had dinner!
