Event info

It is time for us to race again!

A well-known and well-accepted area among the pilots, Vipava valley, invites pilots to join the Adria open competition. One of the most reliable places in Europe provides a safe playground where we can form exciting tasks in an excellent road-connected area. Our goal is to make an actual hassle-free competition where pilots will get their information through the WhatsApp system. That way, you can enjoy your morning ritual, and we meet at the take-off without unnecessary morning briefings. The competition is an open class and also accounts for the Slovenian nationals.

Matjaz Klemencic is organizing the competition, joining all the knowledge gathered so far through numerous competitions worldwide, bringing you only the best of all.
Come and join us in a race with a view of the Adriatic Sea!

Flying site

Vipava valley area has hosted numerous hang gliding competitions already. The venue's main take-off will be Lijak, while Kovk will be used as a reserve possibility. Lijak take-off has been renovated and massively widened where we can host 100 pilots in theory. Still, to have a smooth, hassle-free competition, we decided to allow a max of 60 pilots to the competition. The landing area is big enough to provide safe conditions for a more significant number of pilots landing simultaneously. Possible outlandings are mostly safe and will be discussed before the competition and tasks.

Selection and entry fee

The entry fee is divided into two payments. 50 € is paid by Paypal when you register yourself to the competition, while the rest is paid upon arrival. The first payment is your reservation of a place in the competition. If later, you cannot attend, you can forward your slot to another pilot while the organizer needs to confirm the change. If that happens, please contact the organizer directly. There is no refund if the pilot can not attend.
