The 13th Ozone Chabre Open will take place from 30th June to 6th July 2018.
The friendly, low-stress competition welcomes experienced pilots who are new to comps and emphasises safe, achievable tasks.
There are prizes for Fun, Recreation and Sport categories, determined by wing aspect ratio and certification. Only EN A, B and C wings are allowed in this competition – no EN-Ds this year. There are also separate prizes for women and rookies.
Team flying is strongly encouraged, ideally teams with four pilots of mixed abilities and glider ratings, and those from clubs and schools. “We especially welcome those where the team leaders are willing to help less competition-savvy members, with advice and guidance”, say organisers.
In addition to the flying, the comp has a full programme of activities including talks and lectures, briefings and debriefings by meet director Jocky Sanderson, and of course the legendary Ribiers paella/pizza evening.
The entry fee is €270 euros, although Ozone sponsors pilots flying Ozone wings giving each a €20 discount. The fee includes seven potential flying days with transport and retrieves, live tracking, T-shirt, talks and de-briefs, two meals and the Ozone party. For family and friends, there will be a special entry ticket to cover all the extra events around the competition, and a T-shirt. All registered pilots will be entered into a draw for great prizes including a brand new Ozone wing.
The Ozone Chabre Open is organised by the Laragne-based club, Chabre Vol Libre, with support from Ozone, local and regional authorities, local businesses, and Cross Country Magazine.
