Junior World Gliding Champions Matthew Scutter - Standard Class and Tom Asrcott - Club Class

Club class: Tom Arcsott from Britain needed to perform strongly today and he did, coming in second to take the championship position back from German Phillip Schulz.

 

Standard class: Australian Matthew Scutter finished in 22nd place on the day but maintained his commanding lead of the field to win the Standard Class Championship by 255 points.

The weather and task briefing at JWGC2015 Day 10 was optimistic. However, task setter Paul Matthews’ first comment to me as we met in the club for breakfast was “The weather looks whacky today”.

Robin Smit and Ronald Deerenberg win day at 158kph

Robin Smit and Ronald Deerenberg from the Netherlands are the Standard Class joint winners of Day 9 with a lightning speed of 158kph over the point to point task distance of 631.46km. The two team members displayed incredible focus and discipline to muscle leader Matthew Scutter into third place on a classic Narromine day.

The weather forecast at the beginning of the day showed highly unstable post trough conditions. Briefing was delayed by 45 minutes and it was uncertain if any tasks would be set at all. The tension was relieved when task sheets became available during the delayed briefing.
