The 13th World Glider Aerobatic Championships was declared closed today at the Hosin airfield in the Czech Republic after the completion of five flight programmes. Contest Director Tom Korinek took the decision to call of flying today because of bad weather, so the final "Free Unknown" programme was not completed.

In second place and only 8 points behind Kaminskiy, out of a total of over 8,000, was Erik Piriou of France, also flying the Swift S-1. Third was Jan Roxlivka in a Swift.
