This is the second week of Quest Air Nationals hang gliding flatlands competition.
As with week one, there will be live tracking (Flymaster trackers provided) and the competition is USHPA and CIVL sanctioned, so USHPA NTSS and CIVL WPRS points will be awarded.
The FAI category 2 competition takes place in Meduno, north-east Italy, in an area well known to European pilots.
There will be Class 1, Class 5 and Sports Class categories.
Bag as many Wainwrights (peaks over 1,000ft in England’s Lake District National Park) as possible in under 32 hours, by foot or by paraglider.
Hike-and-fly rules – you carry your kit, or it carries you. All athletes must stop at night. They can choose to bivy with their kit where they finished up, or book a hotel in town (any transport allowed to get there and back) and return to the spot they stopped at, to restart the next day.
All the rules and sign-up form here.
