A celebration of free flight!
The 2007 Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge ended with great success...

The comp got to an end after 6 days in the Caribbean with 5 valid tasks and many grinning pilots! An assortment of flying conditions put to test each pilot's skills on piloting, decision-making, understanding of conditions and planning.

Jocky's de-briefings on different flights were highly educational for the attending crowd and helped the less experienced pilots understand a bit of what is cooked in top pilots' heads. His coaching and advice at takeoff helped a few maximize their airtime and quality of flights during the week...

A few highlights that illustrate what happened in the Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge 2007 edition:

  • Spain's Daniel Crespo set the national high mark for the FAI triangle at 47.2 km in a fantastic demonstration of fast and precise XC flying, completing the course in only 1 hour and 50 minutes.

  • UK's Martin Church took second place overall flying a DHV 2 glider.

  • Over 40 % of the pilots achieved their personal best distance ever and 10 % managed their first XC flight!

  • The shortest distance flown by a day winner in the comp was 33.5 km

  • The overall winner accumulated 167.5 km, most of them flying triangles.

  • Over 25 % of pilots attending the 2006 Caribbean XC Challenge also attended this 2007 edition.

Once again big thanks go to Team Ozone for supporting the event! The following are the sporting results...
