August came with the weather everyone was waiting for – record braking conditions and lots of flying.
Surely enough Yasen Savov proved that the conditions are record -breaking and smashed 2 of the Bulgarian neational records – for free distance doing 360 km from Nevsha to Kavala (Greece), and for FAI triangle – doing 225 km.

In the mean time – our mixed XC groups were getting in on the action beating personal bests and chasing the weather around Bulgaria – Sopot, Asenovgrad, Vratsa, Shumen etc.
We had a nice video from our friend Clive Mante – a recap of his adventures in July:
We also had the annual Trans Balkan 2017 -hike and fly competition which provided a challenging route for the competitors and was won by Tony Pirri from Switzerland – more info on the comp you can find here.
At the end of the month we had our second part of the usual Finnish invasion – with our big group of friends from Finland the adventure continued – again searching for new places to fly all over Bulgaria.
From the flatlands of Plovdiv…
… to the mountains of Vratsa:
Everyone got in on the fun!
We await September and the mellow autumn days! 🙂
