Hello from Portugal

Last week – 11/06/2017 till 17/06/2017 – the first part of our National Paragliding Championships took place in Castelo de Vide, a small village near de border with Spain. The forecast was superb – and we did very good flights.

My results after 5 tasks and 1 training day:

  • I flew 367,2 km
  • I enjoyed 22 hours of airtime
  • Made goal twice
  • 2 x “almost goal: 8 km and 3.5 km from finish line
  • I got a penalty of 400 points because I entererd the altitude limit by 40 meters
  • I won the female classification

Please, check the results on

In July we will have the second part of our National Championship. Stay tuned!

By the way, do you know that I really love my TRITON 2 Light XS and the speed brake system? Now I control my glider almost exclusively with this system, because it makes me feel very safe.
I still have some difficulties in doing inversions, maybe because I’m light on the wing or I do not let the wing flow
