Closing ceremony and departures

Dear all!

The airfield is already sad and empty… Yesterday was a goodbye flying day for all the pilots, crew, team captains and all visitors. The gliding God showed us the best weather of the championship! And in the evening we all enjoyed the farewell party with the best U2 revival band ever ZOO2 – huge thanks to the band and mainly to the frontman – our friend and amazing glider pilot Jan Zahrádka, who also showed us his Nirvana qualities. Today at 11:00 LOC we officially announced the winners of 9th Women’s World Gliding Championships and FAI representative Gisela Weinreich declared this championship closed. We gave the FAI flag to next WWGC organiser, see you next time in Australia!

Huge thanks belong to all pilots who flew the competition, to their crew and Team Captains – it was pleasure to organize a championship for such great people. We would like to thank all website visitors and fans for your favor, interest in the championship and support to all the pilots. We hope to see you soon in Zbraslavice!
