PGAWC tour 2014

Report from Bali

The beautiful Bali in Indonesia hosted 86 pilots from 12 countries.The organizer  was very efficient, organized transport and take off very good so that at first day finished four series and second day made fifth and final.

This was certainly the most accurate in the history of the World Cup, 26 pilots after six series had five landing on the pad. This meant that before the final flight ten pilots had chance to stand.

In the end winners decided the most peaceful hands and nerves in last flight. Amazing results, difference between first ten pilots was 8 (eight) cm only. Valery Tzvetanov from Bulgaria won in front of Matjaz Feraric from Slovenia and Purnomo Alamsyah from Indonesia with 1 (one) cm difference.

Closing ceremony and prize giving was on the coast near to warm see, what a lot of pilots,especially from Europe, used for sunbathing and swimming.

First half of PGAWC 2013 season

Here we are, at the middle of the first half of PGAWC 2013 season, after two competitions in Asia and one in Europe.

Two competition organizers (Thailand and Portugal) got an opportunity to organize PGAWC leg for the first time and they have done a great job, both of them. Special compliments for Portuguese organizers, since they have taken a challenge and organize it in a part of Europe, where paragliding accuracy was not so popular, so far. Now, we all believe this will change, too.

The main characteristics off all three competitions:

Indonesia – Painan

What a great terrain for accuracy competition. Grassy field at a take off and everything pilots and a crowd would need: plenty of shadow, food and drink, … Landing area is on the beach, with very stable and equal conditions for all pilots, not to mention all other commodities. Accommodation at the local residence was a really unique experience and an absolutelly new approach at PGAWC. Probably, this real connection to a local people contributed to a big crowd of spectators at the landing site.

Thailand – Kao Yai

Pilots noticed some very demanding  flying conditions, so they need to take a whole competition even more serious. Dry soil at take off and landing, plus some thermal activities did not leave much space for pilot errors, what reflects also on the final results. Beside this, everything else was on the highest possible level and deserved a name of Princess Cup.

Portugal – Montalegre

An experienced paragliding competition organizer (mostly from XC competitions, including XC World Cup competitions), turned out as a great starting point for a PGAWC competition. At this fantastic flying site, accompanied with strong wind and thermal conditions, pilots needed also a little bit of luck for a top result. Great accommodations facilities and at the end: a final competition round, which started in Portugal and ended in Spain, brought something extra to the competition.

In a few days time, a second half of the PGAWC season started with competitions in Serbia, Romania and a little bit later in Malaysia.
