Great result at PG nationals for local pilot

Local paraglider pilot Matt Stanford had a great result in his first competition, the second round of nationals in Wanaka.

After a frustrating wait due to the first 6 days being cancelled due to weather, Matt flew the last 2 days. Flying 37 and 36km in tough condidtions when many others bombed out Matt took 6th place overall. Matt was placed 1st in the Fun (DHV1-2 Comp)(almost twice as many points as 2nd place) and also beat everyone in the Sport (DHV 2) category! What an awesome result for Matt in his first competition and for our club. It is no wonder Matt was awarded best upcoming pilot. Well done Matt.
