The 32nd World Gliding Championship in the Standard, Club, and World Classes is over.  Our Team is back home in Texas, California, Tennessee, Michigan, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Vermont.  The two Standard Class gliders are at sea, expected back in Boston any day now.

The results are on Soaring Spot. Congratulations to the new World Champions Sebastian Riera, Santiago Berca, and Sebastian Kawa, and to Team Cup winner Netherlands.

We made so many friends, you couldn't fit them all into a big hangar.

Standing room only

So, we're signing off now.  The next World Gliding Championships will be the WWGC in France (July) and the JWGC in Poland (August). See you then.

Special thanks to the US Team Committee for their leadership and support: Rick Walters, Ken Sorenson, Peter Deane, Sarah Arnold, and Blogmeister John Godfrey.
