The Team Challenge: There will be 1 team leader and 3 team members, of varying experience, per team.
All beginners, intermediate and advanced pilots and gliders are welcome. Each morning we set an achievable task, you launch all together and fly with your team, to get to goal and are scored according to your glider category with a handicap system (based on skill level).
As a pilot you get a taste of competition experience, briefing, weather, using your instruments, flying a course, making goal, downloading and scoring.
Whether you want to taste the competition experience, hone your cross country or thermalling skills, set a few PB's, come along for a fun long weekend.
