This month sees the first of four International Gliding Competitions this year with the Flapped Team installed at Stalowa Wola near Turbia in the south East of Poland close to the Ukrainan border for the 20th European Gliding Championships in the 18m, Open Class and 20m Two seater Class. The Official training period is now under way and the competition itself starts on Sunday 12th May. It’s unusually early this year and there is great anticipation in the team for a well-run contest with lovely southern Polish weather and some great results for Team GB!
The Team this year is comprised of:
Open Class: Russell Cheetham and Tim Jenkinson (flying his first international competition)
18m Class: Pete Harvey and Phil Jones
20m Two Seater Class: Steve Jones and Garry Coppin
