PGAEC Czech Republic – Back to Beskydy

PGAEC Czech Republic – Back to Beskydy


Last Friday, 5 rounds of the PGA European Cup, Czech Open 2023 and the Czech
Championship took place in Beskydy. 

71 pilots from 14 European countries flew at Velký Javorník. A weak but direction changing wind prepared challenging conditions for the competitors. After 5 rounds Linus Schubert from Germany was in the lead with 7cm, closely followed by Slovenian Jaka Gorenc (8cm) and Matjaz Sluga (9cm).

On Saturday the wind turned to the west and the competitors were flying on Skalka. 6th round was flown, but the 7th round was interrupted by a storm.

After the storm, the weather allowed us to complete Round 7 and Round 8. At the end of the 8th Round, the top 20 pilots flew in reverse order of ranking after the 7th Round.
The differences between the pilots in the top places were only 1cm. 

In the end the first place was defended by Matjaž Sluga from Slovenia (18cm), followed by German junior Linus Schubert and Slovenian Jaka Gorenc (both 19cm). The second place was decided by the fact that Linus gave 1cm twice and Jaka only once.

We hope that the competitors appreciated the organization of the competition and the environment of the Czech Beskydy Mountains.
