The World Gliding Championships at Hosin in Czech Republic has just finished. After 12 competition days with much good flying weather, WGC concluded with Allan Barnes and Matthew Scutter finishing in 4th place just 21 points behind the bronze medal winning team from Finland in 20m Class. Allan and Matt won two days of the competition and were in medal contention throughout the contest. As Team Captain Terry Cubley said, "You only get two day wins due to a lot of talent."

In 18m Class, John Buchanan had one day win in his JS3. Adam Woolley also won a day flying a Ventus 3.

In Open Class, Scott Percival missed two flying days, which put him out of contention. However he still flew ten race days, completing an excellent performance from the Australian gliding team.
