Delta Club Schweizermeisterschaften

Conclusion au championnat suisse Delta à Grandvillard | Abschluss an der Delta Schweizermeisterschaft in Grandvillard

Sport SHV, 27. June 2021
Deux journées de vol difficiles s'achèvent à Grandvillard. La météo n'a pas joué le jeu comme elle était censée le faire. Hier, le vent du sud-ouest a soufflé tôt sur les sommets des montagnes et aujourd'hui, il y a toujours eu des ombres. Cela a eu un impact sur le championnat suisse Delta. Comme à Alpstein, aucun nouveau titre de champion suisse n'a pu être attribué. Le score requis de 800 points n'a été atteint par aucun pilote (Règlement Sportif B - Delta Paragraphe 4.3.8) et le titre de champion suisse reste donc entre les mains du DC Interlaken. Au total, sept équipes étaient présentes à Grandvillard. Le classement des clubs après deux jours a été remporté par le DC Interlaken devant le Delta Club Valais et Vol Libre Jura. ********** Zwei schwierige Flugtage gehen in Grandvillard zu Ende. Das Wetter spielte nicht hervorragen mit, wie dies eigentlich vorgesehen. Gestern zog der Südwest Wind früh über die Berggipfel und am heutigen Tag war immer wieder mit Abschattungen zu rechnen. Dies wiederum hatte Auswirkungen auf die Austragung der Delta Schweizermeisterschaft.. Wie in Alpstein, konnte auch hier kein neuer Schweizermeistertitel vergeben werden. Die zu erreichende Punktzahl von 800 wurde von keinem Piloten erreicht (Sportreglement B - Delta Paragraph 4.3.8) und somit bleibt der Schweizermeistertitel in den Händen des DC Interlakens. Insgesamt waren sieben Teams in Grandvillard anzutreffen. Die Club Wertung nach zwei Tagen hat der DC Interlaken vor dem Delta Club Valais und Vol Libre Jura geholt.

Day 6 / task 4

Jean-Daniel Kugler, 13. October 2019
In the end, the class sport task from the north take-off got cancelled, due to the strong north wind and low cloud base, coupled with a very tricky cylinder start. In class 1, Marco Laurenzi won the 92 km task by just 1 point in front of Alex Ploner ! Last competition day took place at the south take-off. Conditions turned out to be very good but also tricky, with some cirrus clouds passing from time to time and cutting off the thermals. Many pilots got grounded because of these cirrus. For class 1, a 109 km task was set, going south of Colfiorito, then Gubbio, then back to Sigillo. Alex Ploner won the task again, in front of Moroder and Bau. For sport class, a 48 km task was set, similar as the two first ones (flying south and back to Sigillo). I took a good start in front of everybody, and led all the way to the goal, making almost no mistake and completing the course in 1h13, with Andrea 2nd in 1h35, closely followed by Pawel in 1h38 and Luca in 1h40. Close race for these ones ! In the end, Alex Ploner wins the Italian open 2019 and is pre-european champion, with a huge gap of more than 500 points on Marco Laurenzi and more than 700 points on Davide Guiducci. Winning 4 out of the 5 tasks, not for nothing he's the world champion ! In class 5 (forgot to mention it in the summaries, sorry ), Jochen Zeyher wins the competition with just 47 points on Konrad Baumgartner. Federico Baratto is 3rd. In sport class, i take the first place by winning all the tasks, which is really great ! Pawel Wierzbowski comes 2nd and Fabio Caresi is 3rd and becomes the sport class Italian champion ! Really looking forward to see the progress of the italian pilots, like Fabio, Andrea and Luca, who fly hang gliders for much less time than me but are already very good in thermals and make the goal from time to time. Keep on the good progress guys, you are not far ! Last word : thanks a lot to the organization, Tonino Tarsi, Flavio Tebaldi and all the staff of the Volo Libero Monte Cucco, who put together an amazing event, safety wise and atmosphere wise. For sure the european championships will be a huge success next year !

Day 5 / task 3

Jean-Daniel Kugler, 13. October 2019
After two cancelled days due to bad weather (bit of rain, strong north wind, risks of thunderstorm), the weather improved yesterday. Because of the still quite strong north wind, the organisation decided to go to Tre Pizzi, with a goal at the aeromodelism airfield. For the open class, a 90 km task was set, going to the south of the take-off, then to the north (Fabriano), then back to south, then goal. Alex Ploner again won the task, in front of Evgen Lysenko and Valentino Bau. For the sport class, a small 34 km task was set, going 6 km to the south, the north to Fabriano, then in goal. Again we faced difficult conditions at the start. I really struggled to get some altitude on the first half of the course, especially when flying against the wind, which Pawel did much better than me. It was only back in the take-off area that i could hit some nice altitudes, around 1800 m. I closed on Pawel in the last thermal, which i left for the final glide maybe one minute after him. But i chose a much better line (more over the valley whereas he took one in the mountains), so iwas able to get on front of him before the goal. Then, the stupid moment happened. Because the flight had been quite short, i didn't want to land too early and took a thermal just before the end of speed section, because i had some margin on Pawel. But after 4 or 5 turns, i saw him coming in, so i just had the time then pull the VG and cross the speed section, which made me close the task... just 3 seconds on front of him. Lesson learned ! Today we are at the Monte Cucco north take-off. Still 2 tasks to go !
