    Interglide took place over Saturday and Sunday 25-26th June and this year overseas entry increased the number of pilots to 57. Competitors from Norway, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Turkey, Turkish Rep of N Cyprus and Great Britain. The event was held at Marsh Gibbon near Bicester on a field used for many of our F3J league events.

    Saturday started damp on the ground from rain the previous night and it was overcast with low cloud. The wind blew at 12-14mph, gusting 20-25 at times and this made rounds 1-3 very difficult with many pilots failing to make full time. 4 rounds were completed on Saturday finishing at around 5pm. The organisers decided to change the layout of the field as the wind was forecast to go Southerly on Sunday. All the Brits got together and made short work of moving everything in preparation for the final 3 rounds and Fly-off.

    The now famous “Saturday Night BBQ” started at 7pm. Jim Write and his wife Norma from the Ivinghoe Soaring Association prepared and cooked all the food. Some of us helped a little with serving, but a big thanks must go to Jim and Norma for the massive effort they put into organising the BBQ. A few beers and glasses of wine helped to get everyone in great spirit for the whole evening. It really is a treat to chat with so many people from all over the world about our favourite hobby.

    On Sunday the first flights started at 8.30am. The wind direction was from the south as predicted and we had set the field correctly for towing. It was overcast and misty for the first 4-5 slots of round 5 and this made it tricky for some. Quite often models disappeared in low clouds for a few seconds. Around 9.30am the sun started to burn through and it quickly became warm. Thermals were popping up everywhere and quick launches started to became common. A few pilots decided to try sub 2 second launches and it’s quiet something to see if executed correctly.

    The Fly-off started at around 4.15pm and conditions were good. In the first round most pilots took short tows and it was going to be down to the most accurate landing. At the start of the second round there was some crossed lines and two planes did not get a launch so the group was told to land and it would be restarted. This is the first time a lot of pilots had seen this new rule come into play. All the pilots got clean launches in round 2 and again the 15 mins slot was flown out quite easily. Round 3 saw even quicker launches in an effort by some to get the maximum flight time possible. Scores were then totalled and the results were announced. This years winner was Eser Kismir from North Cyprus, Jo Grini from Norway was second and Conny Ulvestaf from Sweden 3rd.
