One competition day with 5 rounds was held.

First time competing - our club member Vanya Radulova managed to take 3-rd place in the women category!

July came with warm weather and some more thunderstorms.

However we managed to complete 2 XC Training and 2 XC Guiding weeks and to help our friends reach new horizons while feeling more comfortable with thermals.

The XC training consisted of thermal by thermal guidance by our instructors plus briefing and debriefing via tracklog analysys of everyone participating - one of the best ways of learning is trough your own mistakes.
