The forecast the government uses is based on the Fire Risk Index published by IPMA:

Linhares da Beira is in a protected area and the forecast is for the Fire Risk to remain Very High!


The organizers, Câmara Municipal de Celorico and Clube Vertical, have been working closely with all the authorities involved, trying to find solutions to allow us to fly.... this is not possible this year.
