Due to agreement with sponsors, our official opening started after three days of racing.
Races: see results at official page. In summary, first day was as Murphys law…just terrible. Only one pilot could end it, Uli Schwenk, who did a great class of patient and continuity (great job Uli).
Last two days have been great. Second day counted final glide with four gliders coming together at the same time. Just pure racing…absolutely spectacular!!!.
It has been just very emotive. Very nice. Cocktails, cameras, TV interviews (including CNN Chile), more interviews and camera shutting.
At the end we almost cried. The organization prepared a video where the pilots where presented on the big led screen, in front of a 300 people audience (including sponsors and guests from different authorities). Every pilot where introduced by showing images inside the glider flying and making a short comment about the feeling of gliding (about 20 seconds each pilot). At the end, the emotion was complete…we were all winners!!!.
