16th EGC Nitra. Closing ceremony. Champions

The last competition day was cancelled and since 4 days are valid championships is considered to be valid as well. On Friday a farewell party and prize giving ceremony was organized at the hangar. New European champions were declared for all the classes except the world class.

General info

16th European gliding championships is held in Nitra, Slovakia from 17th to 30th of July. A total of 106 competitors gathered to fight for four sets of medals: 16 in 20m, 31 in standard, 10 in world and 33 in club class.

Closing ceremony

The following competition will be remembered for a long time. It was so unfortunate weather-wise. Only 4 days with such a short tasks. Competitors were not able to show their best and the winner collected a little bit more than 1000 points. But despite the bad weather I’m sure pilots and their crew will bring warm memories from the competition. We must give compliments to organizers, which carried out the competition with no accidents and at the highest level ! Perfectly organized farewell party proved it. Very delicious food, incredible music by an “Accapela” group who performed various popular songs without any instruments!! (All sounds composed by themselves). Afterwards new European champions and prizewinner were awarded. Competition flags were passed to 17th EGC organizers from Poland.
