This event is applied to be sanctioned with OPEN FAI 2nd CAT.  Pilots with a valid FAI licence will receive WPRS points.


It is the classification in which the clubs affiliated to THSF will compete. In competitions, clubs can compete in the classification of clubs through their athletes participating in the competition. If at least 5 club teams are formed, the Club Classification is opened. Club teams are formed with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 pilots. Clubs compete in the competition with their own club names. The name of the club and the names of the pilots in the Club Team are notified to the organization at the latest before the window is opened on the first day of the competition. Only licensed athletes of that club can participate in Club Teams. Each club has the right to form only 1 team in a competition. At the end of the mission flight, a team's score is the sum of the points of the 3 pilots with the best score in the team for that day. A pilot cannot be on 2 separate teams at the same time. After the opening of the window on the first day of the competition, no pilot changes or additions can be made to the teams.


The Task committee and Safety Committe will be selected by pilots upon registration day. These committees will be announced during the general briefing and general announcements at the announcement board. The task committee consists of two experienced pilots, together with the meet director.


Please Show respect to the organisation, who will be responsible for your safety and must obeyed to their instructions without objections. Please obey to the schedules at announced timeframe (Briefing, Transport, Report Back). Disobeying pilots may receive penalty points. Please respect the competition area.

  • Radios are mandatory. VOX are prohibited. During the race only the VHF band will be used.
  • During the flight all the pilots must be on the “Safety Frequency” of 145.500 *MHz and must NOT transmit on this frequency except for safety reasons.
  • It is very important that after your landing you change your radio from the Safety Frequency to the Retrieval Frequency of 145.600 MHz.
  • In order to increase the safety of each day’s task there will be observers at the turn points and on the air (Task & Safety committee) who will be in direct contact with the MD.
  • The designated landing area is free of obstacles, but in case of landing out of this area be aware of high-tension cables and poles with power lines because of the high number of them around, especially near the roads or towns. Also be careful with fences or wires in the cultivated fields. Respect the farmers and farmlands.
  • The Safety Report Back is obligatory for all pilots as soon as possible and in any case as specified on the task board within the time limits. All pilots must come in person in Headquarters for safety report back. This allows us to have the constant control of competitors and to avoid a searching rescue action. Pilots who do not respect this rule could be disqualified for the event.
  • In case of the cancellation of the task this will be announced on the Safety Frequency exclusively and only by the MD who is the only person in charge to do so.
  • There is an Ambulance and rescue team available for SAR operation in case of emergency.
  • Cloud flying: Except of the dangers involved, cloud flying is considered as a cheating on other competitors. On arriving at the cloud wisps the pilots must demonstrate clearly his/her intention to leave from ascending air. The organizer has the right to check via GPS every pilot’s daily track log (altitude) to discover if this rule is respected.
  • Thermalling at the take-off area: Each competitor after take off must leave the take off area in order to give clearance to the other competitors to have a clean take off. Pilots who thermal at low altitude over the take off area will be sanctioned or even disqualified.
  • A pilot who lands (or limits his flight) to assist another pilot in distress will be scored for the day. MD will decide on the validity of each case.
  • External aid to competitors

Any help in navigation or thermal location by any non-competing aircraft, including competing gliders not in the act of carrying out the task is prohibited. Pre-fliers (Wind dummies) must land or fly in a designated area as soon as possible after task flying has started.

  • Cancellation or stopping of the task

    The Meet Director is the only person authorized to cancel or stop a task in progress, for emergency reasons.

    When a task is stopped but not cancelled, the pilot’s scores will be determined from their GPS track log position 5 minutes before the accurate time when the task is stopped. The task will be scored only if over 60 minutes have elapsed since the opening of the start gate or at least 1 pilot has reached GOAL.

    The goal can be either physical or virtual The Physical goal is half a cylinder 100 meters on both sides. Any GPS trace in defined half a cylinder will be accepted as a Goal finishing.

    End of speed section cylinder size and position to be decided by the task setting committee and a cylinder or a physical line for the end of the task.

    The crossing/entering of the end of task line/cylinder is controlled by GPS track log. For cylinder time is taken at the entry to the cylinder.

    In case of a remote landing or when there is no physical line displayed, the goal cylinder will be the default TP cylinder. Organizers can change the radius of the cylinder for safety or other reasons during the event. In this case the changes will be announced at the task briefing and will be displayed on the Task Board.

After Landing

  • All pilots must pack their glider immediately after landing.
  • It is obligatory for the pilots to change from Safety Frequency to Retrieve Frequency and report safe landing by radio, telephone, SMS to retrieval cell phone number. The retrieve cars will be moving on determined main roads.
