Competition - 17th Apr 2017
The atmosphere at the airport is very calm and friendly, you can see happy faces and friends chatting in the bar after the nice race. Today`s weather was a big surprise, we were expecting cloudiness coming to our area from the west bringing rain. Fortunatelly we were lucky and the sunny weather lasted until the sunset. We hope for more surprises like this one. Have a nice rest of the day and see you tomorrow.
All gliders are accounted for today. Nice :)
We are waiting for just few more pilots.
Whole 15m class accounted for, one outlanding. The weather looks more than good at the moment.
All gliders from Open class are safely home.
Do not forget to check THE PILOT STATUS LIST to see how pilots are doing.
First ones from 20m class, yay!
Many gliders from 15m class are on final and there are still active Cu clouds above our heads. What a nice view.
15m class gliders approaching as well.
A lot of gliders from Open class have already landed in Nitra and more are on final glides.
"Eko Papa" is the first one. Welcome home.
First glider on 10K! Watch all the happening on live.glidernet.org.
The weather still looks very promising. There are a lot of beautiful cumulus clouds above us and no outlanding have been reported yet. Therefore we expect many gliders on final glide just in 30 minutes!
Start lines have been opened at:
Towing procedure was very smooth today. All gliders got in the air in 1 hour and 5 minutes. Thank you for great cooperation. Good luck to all pilots!
Last gliders from 20m and Club class to tow. The weather is still looking good.
Confirmed to 11.00!
The weather forecast you have heard so let΄s go to the tasks. There are AAT for 2:00 hours assigned for all classes with first launch planned for 11:00.
In case there is any delay in starts the task time changes automatically to 1:30!!!
We can see some Cu clouds already growing above our heads but cloudiness is moving quite fast.
Meteo infromation: Trough of low pressure is moving towards our area from the west. We except some rain in the early afternoon. However there is a chance of usable active interval till 3pm so the plan is to start early for some short tasks. Better conditions are expected in the east of Nitra.
Warning: It will be very cold on wednesday and thursday. We expect max temperatures just about 7-9 degrees and negative tempetature at night.
Today we woke up into the sunny morning with clear blue sky. What a wonderful day to fly and compete. However it will not be that easy. In afternoon hours the whole situation will be complicated by the low pressure area coming from Czech Republic bringing lots of clouds with rain. We hope to manage at least some short tasks.
Runway in use: 33. Get ready earlier today. First start is planned for 11 am!
R grid order: Open class, 15m class, 20m class
