The rules are simple......and
here they are:
The Contest is an
Open Cross Country contest
in two classes running from
January 2004 to 31st December 2004
Class: This is for the longest XC flight flown within
the period of the competition by any registered SAHPA pilot flying a
flex wing hang glider within the borders of the Republic of South Africa.
This is for the longest flight flown within the period of the competition
by any registered SAHPA pilot flying a flex wing single surface hang
glider within the borders of the Republic of South Africa.
It is not necessary to enter the contest prior to making a flight. On
making an XC flight in either class, the report of the flight must be
entered in the form provided online at skydance-soaring.com. This will
constitute entry into the contest.
flight will be accepted after midnight 31st December 2004.
flights is on an honour basis and requires the pilot's word that the
flight was flown as claimed, as well as the name of a person, preferably
a pilot, who knew about the flight. (If you lie, your nose will grow
very long and ruin your aerodynamics for future flights!) A current
results board will be maintained throughout the twelve month period
on this website and will be used to make the final awards.
Any illegal flight will not count toward the contest. (e.g. through
restricted airspace, landing on Oom Sarel's prize dairy cow, or hitching
a ride on the windscreen of a Cessna.)
Skydance Soaring is the final judge for the purposes of awards and arbitration.
(Ever heard of 'he who pays the piper calls the tune?')
For the purposes of this contest the distance flown in a Cross Country
flight will be the straight line distance from launch to landing. (Out
and return flights will not count)
