Flying site

Gemona del Friuli is a historical town located at the foot of the Italian side of the Julian Alps. The region provides a huge playground for task setting both into the flats and along the mountain ridges.

The main competition take-off is “Mont Cuarnan”.
It is large and easily allows 5 gliders to take off simultaneously (5 slot launch) with an ample preparation area for up to 150 pilots. The access to the launch is by way of a tarmac road suitable for all vehicle types. However, the organisers prefer that personal cars are not used by competitors and so, transport will be arranged for everyone to get to launch in comfort, every day. The drive is around 40 minutes and would typically be done in one go. Please note that Covid regulations may change this system. The Mont Cuarnan launch is located in the main Julian Alps mountain range and is south facing. The launch site is 900 metres above the valley floor and faces the flatlands of the Friuli region. To the East you have the expanse of the Julian Alps. To the north the range moves towards the Austrian Alps and to the West you have the Dolomites.

Typical tasks would fly in both the Julian Alps and the Dolomites. There are plentiful and easy thermals to keep pilots amused whilst awaiting a start window. The large goal field is located right next to the town.

Gemona del Friuli to historyczne miasto położone u podnóża włoskiej strony Alp Julijskich. W okolicy znajduje się rozległe przedpole co umożliwia układanie konkurencji zarówno w równinach, jak i wzdłuż grzbietów górskich.
Głównym startem zawodów jest „Mont Cuarnan”. Jest to duże startowisko, ktore bez problemów pozwala na start 5 zawodników jednocześnie (start na 5 stanowisk) z obszernym obszarem przygotowań dla maksymalnie 150 pilotów. Dostęp do startu prowadzi drogą asfaltową odpowiednią dla wszystkich typów pojazdów. Jazda trwa około 40 minut i zwykle jest wykonywana za jednym razem. Startowisko na Mont Cuarnan znajduje się w głównym paśmie górskim Alp Julijskich i jest skierowane na południe. Miejsce startu znajduje się 900 metrów nad poziomem doliny i wychodzi na równiny regionu Friuli. Na wschodzie rozciągają się Alpy Julijskie. Na północy pasmo przesuwa się w stronę Alp Austriackich, a na zachodzie w Dolomity.

Typowe konkurencje w poprzednich latach odbywały się zarówno w Alpach Julijskich, jak iw Dolomitach. Miejsce charakteryzuje się także wieloma miejscami aktywnymi termicznie co ułatwia zawodnikom w oczekiwaniu na okno startowe. Tuż obok miasta znajduje się również rozległe lądowisko na wypadek koniecznego lądowania
