Dear gliding friends,

It is my pleasure to be part of the great organization team to arrange the first Räyskälä Masters in June 2016.

Räyskälä Masters will be arranged from 11th to 18th of June 2016 in 15 meter Racing class and Open class, Finnish gliding nationals will be arranged at the same time in 15 meter racing class. Finnish national rules, which are very similar to FAI Annex A section 3, will be used. Handicaps will be used in both classes.

Räyskälä is a well-known aviation center in southern Finland. It serves many kind of air sports, but the gliding competitions make Räyskälä famous. It has been an arena for several FAI first class championships during past 40 years, also gliding nationals and other competitions are arranged there yearly.

With these words I welcome all pilots to Räyskälä to enjoy its great atmosphere and amazing task possibilities. Räyskälä and top level service awaits for all pilots and crew members.

You all are warmly welcome,

Hannu Halonen
Competition director
