1000 POINTS!  A day to always remember!

Very few are able to experience a day win at an FAI World Gliding Championship.  Amazingly, this flight also earned the largest winning margin of the competition which included three highly competitive classes (Open, 15m, and 18m).  It was the second task at my first (and only) FAI WGC.  I was the top performing US pilot (% of winners score) despite a very costly land-out on contest day five (losing roughly 700 points).  Thank you to Tiffany for endless support and crew work.

Announcement: FAI SAILPLANE GRAND PRIX USA 2020 will be held at Bermuda High Soaring from May 10-16. May 9th will be the official practice day with unofficial practice on May 7 & 8. Mid May is generally considered the “sweet spot” for Bermuda High soaring conditions. This FAI SGP will be held in 15m class sailplanes. Standard 15m sailplanes are welcomed. The 2020 FAI SGP organizers are interested in hosting several unofficial “fun” classes for groups of pilots interested in experiencing the SGP competition format, but perhaps do not fly 15m gliders, or do not want to fly the official event. Please contact Franklin Burbank or Sean Fidler for details and info. The official FAI SGP Championship (15m) is limited to 20 gliders max (priority) and the total number of gliders in the event will be limited to around 30. More details and registration info coming shortly.

Come join the fun!!!!

Today on REC.AVIATION.STUPID (Soaring’s unmoderated, anonymous and smelly troll infested chat forum) we learn how to buy WEED, how to buy DANK CARTS, and someone seems to suggests that competition is synonymous with risking ones life (“SURVIVAL” 🤔) in the sport of soaring. Is it just me or do the subject titles one sees here on the RAS (stupid) list give the sport a bad name? Does it matter? Would you want someone who you introduce to the sport to see this webpage today?

P.S. Anyone care to explain to the page what a “Dank Cart” is? 😂
