The 29th Ukrainian Open Hanggliding Championship has been passed. 2008-08-01

The place is the former military airbase located 150 km to the east from Kiev. It is a beautifully situated place the flatland with large fields, roads to any direction, with the weather as a rule better than in west Ukraine with blue sky and high cloud base. The aerotowing lunches get you up into the sky easy. The second year some enthusiastic hang-glider pilots from Kiev spend weekends here flying for fun, flying triangles and open distance routes. There is a campsite to stay and nice river to swim.

Sunny weather, friendly atmosphere, 7 flying tasks in row there was a lot of fun. The 24 pilots took part in competitions including 4 friends from Russia. There were some good days with completed tasks and some tricky days with completed tasks but weak thermals.

Sergei Semenov took the first place, Dmitry Rusov became second and Viktor Moroz placed third.
Congratulations to the winners!
