Preparing for the Nordic Championships

This summer the Nordic Paragliding Championships will take place in Piedrahita, Spain. This location offers good weahter and a good launch and excellent opporunities for long distance flying. Last year I went to the same place for some flying on my own and had very nice flights. And as I have not been to such an event in a while decided to it would be fun to participate. The Nordics are a serious competition but at the same time the atmosphere is nicely relaxed as most participants are there to enjoy themselves.
Encouraged by last years good flights I've decided to prepare somewhat seriously for the competition, and I will report on those preparations and the (lack of ?) effects here....
