General info

16th European gliding championships is being held in Lithuania, Pociūnai from 1st to 13 of August. A total of 75 competitors from 19 countries gathered to fight for three sets of medals: 25 in 15m, 29 in 18m, and 21 in open class. Louis Bouderlique, Russell Cheetham and Peter Harvey are the defending champions in 15m , 18m and open classes respectively.

Day 7

It is already halfway of the championships and the 7th competition day. Todays weather puzzled task setter for quite some time and after many postponements and changes with tasks he finally set 2 hours AAT tasks for all classes with a minimum distance of 170-220km. Launches initiated at 14:00.

Unfortunately fast coming front ruined the day for many pilots, with the most outlandings in 18 meter class and least in 15m. Strangely it didn’t have a lot of influence on the overall standings.

Pažaislis music festival

One part of really famous “Pažaislis music festival” is held in Pociunai. This is really special event for Pociunai, which was organized to mark the 16th European gliding championships and to bring media attention to gliding sport here in Lithuania. One of the best Lithuanian opera singers Gintarė Skerytė (soprano) Virgilijus Noreika (tenor) and Dainius Puišys (baritone) were present.
