The Nordic Paragliding Open took place in Tolmin, Slovenia, from August 27th to September 2nd. Pilots from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden congregated in the Julian Alps for a week of fun flying. Our good friend and winner of the event, Ronny Helgesen, reports:
“For Rolf Dale and I, this was the perfect event to test our fresh Enzo 3s. The first day was slow and we were skeptical to use too much speed bar close to the terrain. The glider felt very stable so the next day we flew faster. After two days of competition, Rolf was in the lead just one point ahead of me. I won the next day and we were leading the comp together.
On the fourth day the race was moved to Lilack. I was in the leading gaggle close to goal and when I realized that the first five pilots didn’t have enough altitude to reach goal I went for it and made it to goal first, winning the Nordic Championship. Thanks Ozone for making this beautiful wing"
Rolf Dale finished second, and Erik Renhelf third on his Zeno.
In the women’s category, the winner was Johanna Hamne, followed by Mari-Anne Aanes in second and Nicole Fedele in third. Johanna and Mari-Anne flew Zenos.
The top ten pilots flew Ozone.
