Interview by Louise
Some comments from pilots flying earlier in the day:
Linda Kits, Sweden: “I’m finding it tough – the level of competition is very high and I feel very much the beginner. But I’m going to keep going!”
Guri Storeide, Norway: “I enjoyed myself today, but the landing was not so good! It was nice to do a restricted round (manoeuvres up to 1.90 coefficient) as these are my best ones.”
Lea Hansenberger, Switzerland: “I just loved it today. The landing went a bit wrong though. I tried to spin out of the ground spiral, but I turned the wrong way!”
Christina Kolb, Austria: “It was a good run, but the landing could have been better – which is normal for me!”
Nicole Schmidt, Germany: “It was stressful waiting on launch for conditions to improve. In fact, it looked worse than it was. But I landed on the raft today, which was a good result!”
Raoul Rodriguez, Spain: “Very happy after today’s run, it went well, especially given the strong wind. And the landing was better than usual!”
Felix Rodgriguez, Spain: “A good run! I played it safe, with not so many twisted manoeuvres, and of course, it was restricted, so nothing too complicated.”
