New comp posted for Valle de Bravo.

Postby GrumpySmurf » Sun Jun 11, 2017 6:24 am

The gent I was under the guidance of during this past Christmas, Marko Hrgetic, is organizing a comp of a slightly different flare for January of 2018.

Titled XCSkyRace - the format is different from the traditional RtG (Race to Goal). A start/end cylinder is defined each day and using that start/end cylinder, competitors are expected to fly a cross country route of their own choosing. A straight out and return scores the lowest per km flown, while a FAI triangle scores the highest. Failure to return to the start/end cylinder results in a point penalty per km that the pilot comes up short. Scoring is also handicapped based on wing class.

In short - it's the thinking pilots comp.

I am really excited to give this alternative comp format a try and encourage any and everyone (especially the Valle snowbirds) who flies XC on a regular basis to sign up.

Interesting to see an XC comp in Valle.
With small glider class multipliers to help even the playing field a bit.

I wonder if they will consider limiting the length of the day to make it a bit less of a flying marathon?
Glad to see Marko bringing something new to Valle.

And there is something about an average speed multiplier too.
