Pilots kept indoors by the northern hemisphere winter can at least enjoy following the first big international of the year, the Continental event combining the 3rd FAI South American Gliding Championship and the 59th Argentine national championships, opening in Adolfo Gonzalez Chavez, in the province of Buenos Aires, this Saturday 7th January.

Despite the weather, we have had so far 4 valid days in Standard Class and 5 in Club Class at the 7th FAI Junior World Gliding Championships in Musbach, Germany. The Organisers are trying to catch every single opportunity to fly, but we already had two days with only one or two finishers. That's gliding!
