Competition Time

During May, Sisteron hosted the Sailplane Grand Prix Final. Before the competition started there had been some misgivings as to whether the Sisteron team would cope with the demands of such a high profile event but, from where I was sitting, everything appeared to go very well. I have to say that just watching the live broadcast via the internet was a fascinating exercise. The big boys flew impressively fast (and low), attempting the sorts of things I would never consider, occasionally in severe weather. It was very, very useful to have the opportunity to study their tactics; I particularly enjoyed the final day, when the competition was won by the pilot who didn't follow the pack.
