If you are not a member of SSA (Soaring Society of America) and thus do not receive your own copy of "Soaring" Magazine, then you should sign up and get it! (IMHO)

Besides the many articles that will help you be a better, and thus safer pilot, the October 2018 edition contains an article about the "18 Meter National Championship" on pages 20 thru 26.

Photos by our own Ben Mayes!
Greatest photo ever of our own Pete Alexander!

Congrats to Ben and to Pete for a lot of things - too numerous to mention, but if you are a local, then you know of their many tremendous contributions to our sport.
Thank you both.
