GIN pilots on top at the New Zealand Nationals

GIN pilots won almost every category at the first leg of the New Zealand Nationals, recently hosted on the South Island of New Zealand by the Tasman club.

Reuben Muir led the competition on the GIN Carrera until the last day, only pipped at the post by Grant Middendort on the GIN Boomerang X. Reuben reported that during he entire competition, no EN C glider got past the GIN Carrera. At the same time, he felt relaxed and comfortable on the Carrera, especially in rough air. With 5 valid tasks, flown at 3 different locations, this was a successful competition. Congratulations to all!

1. Overall: Grant Middendorf, GIN BoomerangX

1. Sports Class / EN C: Reuben Muir, GIN Carrera (EN B)
