Marko Hrgetić won the Istria Paragliding Open, which was held 1-7 July in Istria, Croatia.
The competition served as the joint Slovenian and Croatian Opens and suffered from some poor weather – only two tasks were completed and scored, at 52km and 57km in length.
Marko won the Croatian Nationals, and Primoz Susa won the Slovenian Nationals. Primoz also came second overall in the Open comp.
Primoz was especially happy to win as he was flying the EN B Rook. Designed by the Valic brothers this was a “Slovenian glider winning a Slovenian competition,” Primoz said.
