The conditions were good but the speed these juniors were flying the tasks was incredible. 158 kph for 600 km one day.


A 17 year old Australian won a day in club class. Someone to watch. James Nugent.


Congrats to Matt Scutter. We knew he was fast but now a world champion!

Matt Scutter currently leading in the 15 Meter class of the Australian Nationals - see <url=http://www.soaringspot.com/en_gb/54th-australian-nationals-ozglide-benalla-gld-2016/results/15-meter/task-5-on-2016-01-10/total>day 5</url>. He will certainly be a competitor in WGC next year - with a strong chance to do well in that as well.
