Mai 28 2007
The Dutch and Polish Nationals have finished and it is great to see that “our” under- 25- junior Bart Berendsen was winner in the club class in his ASW 19 w.He will fly the world comps in Italy in Rieti and this “WIN” must a great boost to him. They had 6 days, number 7 never happened.
Other interesting winner was Sjaak Selen in the combination class. He flew in an LS 8. He is the younger brother from the two-times-world-champion Baer Selen, who won in Chateuraux and in Uvalde in 91. I had the honnour of being the team manager that year.
Runner up was Dick Teuling. Interesting news about him is that he was my “teacher-in-gliding ” , and dared to let me go solo during a camp from the ZES [Student aeroclub from Eindhoven!] in 1967.All those years he flew in the Dutch TOP. Great guy, great pilot!
In open class a Dutch National -team -pilot Hadriaan van Nes [ DG 800s ]won with as runner up another team-pilot, Roland Termaat.
The Polish Nationals had winners I did not know, though Centka and Jarysz,as well as Wujczak were participating!
The German Nationals are still going strong till Thursday.
In June lots of other Nationals will be flown in different classes;P.E.
Finland, England, Norway, Russia,Austria and the German clubclass comps. Will try to keep you informed!
In Norway they even flew a 1000 km . a few days ago. Great effort!
Rain here, cheers Ritz
