Swedish West Cup (PG) 2018
Apr 28 – May 1 all-day
Swedish West Cup (PG) 2018 @ Falköping | Västra Götaland County | Sweden

There are places for up to 40 participants in the Swedish West Cup which takes place from 28 April – 1 May at Falköping.

Organisers say:

“We hope that the classic hill of Ålleberg near Falköping will be flyable and that will be the HQ. But we can choose early in the morning to change flying site from day to day and use different flying sites each day for tasks as well as we might even use towing to maximise flying (so bring your towing bridles!)

“We especially encourage comp-beginners to join us, as all tasks hopefully will be made downwind or with a slight crosswind so everyone will have a decent chance of reaching goal or at least get away on nice XC flights.”

All participants must get to the take-off every day by their own means.

More information and registration at Airtribune.com. There is also an event Facebook page.

Skytribe XC 2018 (PG), Romania
May 29 – Jun 3 all-day
Skytribe XC 2018 (PG), Romania @ Clopotiva | Județul Hunedoara | Romania

Romania’s Skytribe Paragliding Club host the Skytribe XC FAI cat 2 competition in Clopotiva from 29 May – 3 June 2018. 

They say it was such a success in 2017 that they have made it a six-day event this year, instead of five.

“Clopotiva is part of the Retezat National Park, one of the highest and most beautiful mountain ranges in Romania. The highest peak is Peleaga, at 2,509m. It’s a peak that can be reached fairly easy, crossing from Pelegii meadow. On the way you will pass Bucura lake (the largest glacial lake in Romania, with a surface of almost 90 000m²) which can be admired in all its splendour from the top of Peleaga.

The event’s details can be found on Airtribune.com, where you can also register. Contact the Skytribe paragliding club
