Event info

Welcome to the 11th Flow Mosel Paragliding Open 2020 and thanks for your interest in flying and competing at our Mosel River sites.
We are very happy and proud to be supported again by Flow Paragliders from Goldcoast Australia, represented by the Suisse Flow Team: Jan and Carel Lübbig.
For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the famous Moselle is running down from France through Luxembourg until it joins the mighty Rhine. The Moselle twists and turns its way between Trier and Koblenz along Germany's most beautiful river valleys, exactly where our takeoffs are located - at the steep wineyards of the Moselle, which allows us short ways for any wind direction. Save flatland flying with tricky technical handicaps because we are surrounded by some airspaces. Except the big SW take off at Klüsserath our take offs are pretty small. That is the reason our competition is limited to max. 85 Pilots.
We are running this event since 2007 now. and we are looking forward to invite the Mosel Open community again for no.11 at the beginning of May 2020. We will finish the event on a saturday. That guarantees everybody a smart drive home and there is no excuse to skip the big price giving ceremony at our HQ Deutsch Herrenhof.
