Women stormed to victory at the German Hang Gliding Open in Samberg / Hochries last week (25 – 29 May 2010).

Natalia Petrova (RU, Aeros) won the Open outright, and Moyes pilot Corinna Schwiegershausen (second in the open) is the new overall German champion, with Konrad Schwab (Icaro 2000) German male champion. Slovenian pilot Primoz Gricar (Aeros) was third in the Open, and first male.

The rigidwings competition was won by German Peter Friedemann (Atos VR), who is now his country’s Class 5 Champion 2010.

Hochries is just 100 km east of the Tegelberg, where the Women’s and Rigids hang gliding World Championships suffered from such awful weather a week beforehand and no tasks were validated in the Women’s World Championships. In comparison, then, the German Open fared a bit better, with two shortish tasks, of 51 and 47 km, flown in fairly weak conditions.
