The Hang Gliders had a successful competition, pulling out four tasks during the week.
John Smith won overall (that’s the third year running!), with Shane McKay & Hagen Bruggemann tied for second.
Hagen suffered some equipment damage after a dud launch (sounds like he deserved some gravy for that one). But the Nationals are the Nationals, and Hagen wasn’t going to let lack of equipment stop him from competing. He surprised everyone (himself included?) with the quickest ever purchase of a new HG. A few hours’ drive in the evening, and he was back with a new glider. It was worth it – the first day flying it, he won the task.
Congratulations, guys, good flying all around.
