Spring has sprung in the Northern hemisphere.
In the mean time in the land down under Ivelin Kalushkov sets another Bulgarian national record of speed over 300 km FAI traingle in 15 and 18 m class.
With the winter lаying down layer upon layer of snow in Bulgaria, Nikolay Yotov set out to yet another expedition to Kenya and Ethiopia.
Niki and a group of foreign pilots managed to discover 2 new takeoffs and to do some nice flights.
One of the previous years XC routes was flown multiple times with 5000 meter cloudbase.
Niki compiled 2 photo slideshows from his trips:
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.
