Horror day

Yesterday we had the last day of the Croatian open. I went to the start and pushed myself to the air with out promesing thermal. Straight bombed out. Primoz and Regina got the interval and raised above the start. After my landing only one started in one hour and he also joined us bellow the start. I called Nena and she raced to retrive me back to the start. Just when we arrived 3 pilots started and thermaled up. Just as I set up my glider the wind came from the back. Such a misfortune. I waited till the last starting time and again been bombed out. F... Primoz won the day again with being only one in goal. I ended up 5th and Alan 4th as he flew yesterday realy good. In the evening we had a nice party and price giving ceremony here on the start. Now we need to pack slowly and get back to real life again. Photos are coming when I get back home.

Relaxing before the comp

Finally Raspadalica

Thankfuly today we don't need to drive far away to Ucka starting place. Today we will start from camping site. Easly eat our brakefast put the gliders together and jump from the edge of Raspadalica. Yesterday Primoz won the day again, even all leading points didn't help to overcome this speedy pilot. So today is the last day of Croatian open, hope for a good flight. Regards from a quite camping site.

Pos: First in goal :)

71 km task, we flew like on a nascar triangular course for three times. Still, the race was realy interesting with changing conditions, ridge flying and a bit of flats. I was first in goal with Jarc 10 minutes behind me. Primoz came in 17 min behind me but took 3th start gate weach was 15 min apparth. We will see wath the leading points will do, but still a trully nice and satisfaing flight today. I changed some things on the glider and always genorous Primoz Gricar helped me to oiled VG sistem so the glider worked perfectly. Tomorow is the last day of the competition, fingers crosed for a good result.

Ucka again, Croatian open

On the briefing they decided to go to Ucka starting place again. Aldo there was a nice wind on Raspadalica we need to drive now for an hour to Ucka. It still is a nice place to fly, you thermal over the ridge and you have a realy nice view over the Adriatic sea and irelands weach are spread all around. Hope for a fast goal today.

1st day, too unstable (croatian open)

The task was canceled already in the morning. We went to the sea side. For the first time this year I tasted the smell of the sea. For tomorow the weather looks like for the task, aldo it is raining here now. Seams like we will have tree flying days afterwards. Raspadalica the start place with a small camp offered a place for me Nena and Alan and yesterday we got a company from Primoz and Regina. Hope that tomorow we wake up on a crouded start.

Testing new nokia e51 for bloging


Here in my home town is at the moment like in hell. Metal camp festival brought 10000 metal heads to Tolmin. I took a chance yesterday and went to fly to take some pictures over this amazing event. All the bars all full and there is a long stripe of tents and people beside river Soča.

And now off to Croatia to Buzet to compete the Croatian open competition.
