Happy New Year 2019!
The new 2019 started very exciting for Ivelin Kalushkov who managed to beat one of the old Bulgarian National gliding records in the first day of the year.
The winter inversions started creeping in the valleys and the first snow came shortly after - with Sopot takeoff covered in snow and the usual winter mists the only thing left to do was practice our spot landings.
Some club members decided to join the Sopot Accuracy Open - spot landing competition that took place in mid November.
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!
It seemed that the summer didn't wanted to end this year.
October provided the perfect conditions for training and amazingly even samall cross country flying for the eager flocks of new birds that joined us in the beginners and intermediate courses.
More than 20 students took to the skies and discovered the beautiful new world of paragliding.
With the last sunny days of the Summer came and the annual "Finnish Invasion" of Sopot.
Our frinds from Helsinki were again arround and about managing to make some nice flights in the valley and beyond making the best of the good autumn conditions.
Due to the persistent NE winds some interesting routes were possible to the SW of Sopot in the rarely flown southern slopes of Sredna Gora.
With the first days of the August sun came and the long awaited summer weather.
In the first week of August our team at Skynomad organized the 2018 Czech Open championshps.
With a very favorable weather 6 valid tasks were flown by the 62 competitors.
With many smiles and many people in goal every day the competition elected the new Czech champion - Michal Sneiberg
