Polish your Polish (Part 2)

Guest from around the world: pilots, team capitains and crew members have got a lot of time during WGC2018 in Ostrów. It's time to tell everybody what they are doing when it's raining. They are polishing their Polish with amazing results! Have a look what's on tongues of Adam Woolley, Norbert Alin Scarlat, Darius Liagaudas and one of the crew member from Switzerland Luca Urban. This time not only Sebastian Kawa teaches them how to pronounce Polish words and sentences. Also Łukasz Grabowski does it. Enjoy!

Don't kill the messenger

Don't get angry at or punish someone who is simply delivering bad or undesirable news as they are not responsible for - exhort Sebastian Szczurtek and Rafał Lokumski from Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water Management. Forecasters don't have many good news for pilots during Championship in Ostrów. 4 days were cancelled due to bad weather conditions, one task was cancelled because of the meteo.

Polish evening

What are the most common dishes in Wielkopolska region? For sure it's "kaszanka z cebulką" (bloody sausage with onion) and "pyra z gzikiem" (white cheese with potatoes). But still we've got some more delicious things and we tried to present them during "Polish event". The were some amazing polish sasuages, fresh pickled cucumbers and lard. Have a look!

Zadanie 3 zaliczone

Po kilku dniach przerwy w lotach, spowodowanych niesprzyjającymi warunkami atmosferycznymi, zawodnicy wracają do gry. Tym razem dość kapryśna pogoda pozwoliła na rozegranie krótszych konkurencji, trwających średnio od 2,5 do 3 godzin, tym samym piloci pokonywali od ok. 270 do 320 km. Pod koniec zadań, już w czasie dolotów szybowników, silny wiatr i gwałtowna ulewa sprawiły, że aż szesnastu lądowało poza lotniskiem. Na szczęście zarówno piloci, jak i ich maszyny wrócili bezpiecznie.
