Apologies for lack of photo quality, heavy crops for most pictures and into the sun/brightness, but gives a flavour of nationalities involved.

Nice shots, it is actually the Europeans, rather than worlds. Have loads of photos from the grid, I am a member so get free run, that I need to go through. Today was the last competition day. Looks the the three classes were won by Germany (2) and Austria with Brits coming second and third by small margins. This was the first major international gliding competition in the uk since the 1960's, hopefully not the last?

Sorry I meant European Comps, let's hope we have many more.

Modern gliders are remarkable, that's for sure!
