New scoring system

Dear competitors!

As it is our goal for as many competitiors as possible to have equal chances for the overall win in the world cup, the regulations have been changed in 1 aspect.
In this season, overall score will consist of 50% of best results from all series. 
The main reason for this change is for Asian and European contestants to have realistic chances of winning the overall title with at least 1 participation in a competition on another continent. 
We hope for the change to have a positive impact on the rise of competition as regards the overall season win.
We wish you a successful season!

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.

European events finished for 2013

Last two events in Europe were finished in Vrsac , Serbia and Tusnad Romania. More than 100 pilots took part from 13 different countries. Weather in Vrsac permitted only three rounds due to strong wind but in Tusnad was better and  pilots made five rounds. Now after 24th rounds you can see final ranking at results. In top ten , Europeans are the better but I hope after last round in Asia the ranking will be changed with more Asian pilots. See you in Malaysia on last PGAWC event and winning ceremony.

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.

Canceled event in China for 2012

task stopedDear accuracy pilots & friends,
Despite all efforts involved in last couple of months, from Mr. Wei Zhang from Aero Aport Federation of China and Team PGAWC, due to unfortunate circumstances at the competition site, we have decided to cancel PGAWC event in China for 2012.

A main reason for this decision was a fatal free flying accident on this site and still going on investigation.
It was not an easy decision for all of us, since it is the first time we have ever cancelled a competition before it even started.
So, we have to focus to a next one: Wasserkuppe, Germany and finals a weekend after: Bach, Austria.

Details for both of them will be published soon.

Monte Negro and Albanian PGAWC competition report

Albania open 2012This time, both competitions were in the Eastern part of Europe. The first one in town Budva, located on the Monte Negro`s coast and the second one, about 400kms Southern in Vlora, Albania. Both of them were held on the beach and with a help of laminar wind from the sea, very low results were expected.

BUDVA – Nice and sunny weather with a light wind from the sea side, has forced all pilots to concentrate and finish their landing precisely. Matjaz Feraric started with two DC scores, Rafael Kerin completed all four rounds with only 4cms and Matjaz Sluga hit 7cms after five rounds and 9cms after sixth. Those were really Slovenian two days, despite great results from Serbian, Indonesian and Bolgarian and Czech pilots. Every pad score with more than 4 cms meant that pilot losted a couple of places in general ranking.
Before the final (sixth) round started in the opposite order, top five pilots still had a chance to fight for a podium but every single centimeter counted. A total Final order started with a Winner Matjaz Sluga (5cms), followed by Jaka Gorenc (6cms) and Matjaz Feraric on the third place (7cms), while fourth Slovenian pilot Rafael Kerin shared a place with Indonesian Elisa Manueke (8cms each).
In female competition the best (and 18th in total) was Adriana Liz from Indonesia (18cms), followed by Marketa Tomaskova from Czech Republic (24cms) and Milica Marinkovic from Serbia (25cms).
In team competition Yagababa won in front of team Bolgaria and Best 4 Nike.
Organizer did a really good job taking a good care of more than 50 pilots from 11 countries. Good accommodation, good food and logistics, followed by a smooth competition did not come unnoticed. A lot of pilots expressed their opinion that Budva and skilled organizing team are capable of organizing PGAWC and even FAI cat.1 competition.

VLORA – Again, nice and sunny weather and when the sun came higher, also wind conditions at take off improved and allowed us to complete five competition rounds.
Rather interesting landing site would been even more demanding with a direct wind from the sea but we have experienced slightly side wind during the whole competition.
Again, great results and another set of records also at this competition. Matjaz Sluga completed four rounds with only 2cms and after a final fifth round, he got 4cms, which was only enough to share the first place with Bolgarian Tzvetan Tzolov. Third place was than reserved for Monte Negro pilot Dusan Simovic (5cms). In female competition, Milica Marinkovic (28cms) was too strong for Tamara Kostic (31cms), both Serbia and Marketa Tomaskova (152cms) from Czech Republic on the third.
At team competition nothing really new: Yagababa in front of Bolgaria and Czech Republic.
Organizer involved a lot of time and energy in a media coverage of a whole event, which were seen in live at internet tv all cometition days, including prize giving ceremony. That last part was something extra special and ended with imposing fireworks. 70 PGAWC competitors and another 50 competitors for Albania open was a rather big crowd to handle but organizer tried hard to do his best.

First two pgawc events in year 2012

Punchak indonesiaAt the first competition in Indonesia (Punchak), 83 pilots from eleven different countries gathered together. Organizer did a really good job at preparation of take off and landing area which are bigger than last year but then weather decided not to cooperate. All competition days, wind was too strong and with occasional rain drops and there was no other choice than to cancel a competition, unfortunatelly.

After this, pilots have moved to Malaysia, a great resort close to Mt. Kinabalu mountain on Borneo island. Weather conditions there were more friendly and organizer was able to complete all six competition rounds, with 54 competitors, from 12 different countries.

After a first couple of rounds it was clear that final score will not be low on centimeters, since landing conditions were rather demanding. Tricky landing area with stronger wind and thermal activity had challenged pilots to show all their skills and experiences for every single competition round.
For quite some time, Indonesian pilots were struggling for the first win at the World Cup and this time they made it. Even better, they won first two positions for individual ranking. They really deserve it, since they were strong during the whole competition. It is true that before the start of a last competition round, a lot of positions were still not finally guaranteed but even this time, the best pilots have won, at the end. On the highest position on the poduim was Dede Nisbah, followed by Nanang Sunarya, Both Indonesia and on the third step was Tone Svoljsak from Slovenia. In Female competition won Adriana Lis from Indonesia, followed by Chiao Yu Chiang from Chinese Taipei and on the great third position was Ifa Kurniawati, also from Indonesia.
At the team competition, there were no big changes at the start of a season. Teams Yagababa, Garuda and Best 4 Nike were on the podium in a opposite ranking order. These teams were still a big step in fromnt of the other but as already mentioned, we are still at the start of a season and later we will know much more.  
Malaysian competition organizer did a really great job, on the flying area and outside. Logistics and accommodation at a nice hotel and a great welcome meal and closing ceremony dinner including excellent prices for competitors, pleased everybody and for sure, they will come back to fly, compete and enjoy in a good crowd.

With a competition on a last sunny weekend, we succesfuly completed another PGAWC season. It started in February in Trakai –Lithuania, continued in March with Neustift in Stubai Walley – Austria and weekend later in Vrsac- Serbia. Followed by two Asian competitions: in June at Puncak –Indonesia and weekend later at Ranau –Malaysia and completed with finals in Wasserkuppe –Germany.

PGAWC overall 2011 winnersSpeaking about 2011 season in numbers: we hosted 236 pilots, from 76 different countries, competing in 58 teams and completed 26 competition rounds. Record breaking number of pilots at the competition was 104 pilots in Serbia. We are happy to write that on a total ranking, 29 female pilots can be found. Beside this, a lot of pad scores and big progress in team competitions, as a sign of a higher number of skilled pilots, would also be a good news of this season.

Despite the hard times in general, accuracy landing population is growing persistently: we have new pilots from old and new accuracy countries, new competition host countries (not only of World Cup but also in accuracy FAI2 competitions in general), bigger interest of media and wider interests from sponsors, as well.
Local TV and press did a good coverage of events and we have seen some articles in magazines like Thermik, Japanesse Paraworld, English Skywings, … and we attracted much more attention on World paragliding forum, and of course pgawc web page, not to mentione Youtube or Vimeo.

From a competition side, Europe is still in the lead but Asia is comming closer, very fast. When we check a list of FAI supported competitions in Asia: a lot of National Championships, Asian and Beach Championship and of course, World Cup competitions.
Competition organizers did a great job trying to make them interesting also beside competition itself. A lot of different shows, cultural events, barbeque parties, movie presentations, fun competitions, a lot of support regarding accommodation&transportation, a lot of practical prizes for pilots; by their possibilities, of course. All these things made competitions week very attractive to increasing number of pilots.

Very important part in all this goes to PGAWC sponsors: Airwave, Skywalk and Kimfly. With their contributions, we managed to cover a big part of general costs and also prizes for a final ceremony. In return, we tried hard to promote their presence in our sport, through the whole season on many different ways.

A promotion of paragliding, of accuracy landing, a promotion of competition sites and  competition organizers and of course promotion of our sponsors, will also be a main goal for a 2012 competition season. Beside this, we will work even harder on promotion in magazines and web pages and on offering a full support to new competition organizers.

An important goal for 2012 season is to organize again the most of competitions outside high summer season. In that case we will attract more pilots who will normaly go to holidays or XC flying. Beside this, we will do our best in order to attract even more equipment manufacturers and make this discipline even more interesting for competitors, spectators, competition organizers and of course: sponsors and here we are very open to your suggestions, as well. With a high quality competition level and without any dangerous situations or injuries during competitions, it will not be so hard to achieve.

For PGAWC team

The PGAWC competition report from Germany

The PGAWC competition report from GermanyDespite the fact that it was the first PGA competition in Germany it was very clear from the beginning: when Papillon organizes a competition, even weather can not go wrong. Everything, from transportation, registration, media coverage, the whole competition and final ceremony with a party was on a high level.
Both candidates for a title: Matjaz and Goran started well but competition six rounds seemed to be easily completed. After some rounds, Czech pilot Vaclavik and Gorenc from Slovenia were still without any mistake while a group of pilots waited for a worst score to be dropped, after the fifth round. Since the wind strenght dropped a little bit, scores were tighter and tighter but at the end we whitnessed results in the same manner: Gorenc Jaka won with 10cm, followed by Matjaz Feraric, 11cm and Radek Vaclavik with 12 cm.

Not far behind were British pilot Simmons, Bulgarian pilot Tzolov and Indonesian representative Danang. German pilots prepared a real surprise to all of us, specially Andreas Schubert, who would be very high in the ranking but he did one mistake too much. In female competition Hungarian Zsuzanna Toth won, while Indonesian Sirin Milawati and Barbora Smutna from Czech Republic, got to be pleased with a second and a third position.In team competition, we have seen a classic battle of three teams and this time, the most successfull were: Best 4 nike, Yagababa and Garuda.
For the final ranking after all six competitions, Slovenian pilot Matjaž Feraric has collected only 38 cms in 26 competition rounds. Second place won Slovenian Rafael Kerin with 64cms and the third Serbian Goran Djurkovic with 69 cm. Goran and Rafael have changed their position at the last competition.

For females, Sirin Milawati was on the highest position, accompanied by Dian Rosnalia and Lis Andriani. All three of them from Indonesia.In team competition the same teams, only a little bit mixed: Yagababa was the best for a second time in a row, second position for Garuda and third Best 4 Nike. A more detailed final 2011 season report and all updated informations for pgawc site, will be prepared in a week. In the meantime, you can enjoy in a gallery of pictures on pgawc web page: from Ms. Vesna Simmons and Ms. Anemari Kerin.

Malaysian PGAWC competition report

Malaysian PGAWC competition A Malaysian leg of PGAWC was this year held in Sabah region of Borneo island in a town called Ranau . Place is located a little bit over 100 km Eastern from Kota Kinabalu, at the bottom of beautiful, 4.095m high Mt. Kinabalu. The most of pilots actually continued Asian part of competitions, joined by pilots from Qatar, China and Chinese Taipeh.

Malaysian organizer already had some experiences with PGAWC but this time, they used a place where nothing can go wrong and had more luck with a weather, as well. Despite some rain drops, we completed max.number of rounds, all six, thanks to good organized transportation and dedicated launch marshals.

Landing site is not so easy as it seems from a take off but there is a lot of place for a safe landing. When the sun appeared through the clouds, pilots experienced a lot of lift on the bottom but this was not a case for Slovenian Rafael Kerin and Chinese Guang Sheng, who were on the top from a very beginning.

A last -sixth round began in a opposite ranking order and among top ten there were only some slight changes of positions. Pre-last flight was for Guang Sheng and he scored 2cms, while last one was for Rafael, who once again confirmed his best position with a 0cm.

In a female competition, top four positions were kept by Indonesian pilots, where Rosnalia Dian, Sirin Milawati and Cherry Bonaria were the strongest.

In team competition, Yagababa won with incredible 76cm after all six rounds, with only 4 cms for a last round. They were followed by China 1 and Best 4 Nike.

Opening ceremony was held at the landing site, accompanied by a Minister of turism, while a closing ceremony with a dinner and some tourist presentations, not to mentione some local music and dancing, was organized at beautiful Mount Kinabalu Heritage resort hotel.

This competition will be also remembered by a big price money for individuals and teams, not to mentione a great hospitality and good organization and of course, an organized tour to Mt. Kinabalu the very next day.
