From 5E:  A few scenes from Hosin, where it’s starting to feel like everyone’s here and the festival is about to kick off.  More great soaring conditions today, though complicated by showers early, mid, and late.  Got to fly with the Diana 3 for the first time and the Ventus 3M.  And overlapped with the Open Class along a ballistic street second leg–some amazing aircraft here.  Erik Nelson

Leigh’s connection to soaring and competition is through her husband, SZ, for whom she’s crewed for 42 years.  She’s a passionate supporter of the US Teams and loves contest reporting.  She currently resides  in both Steamboat Springs, Co. and Greenville, SC.
