New Auckland Paragliding Trophy

Hi Folks,


To celebrate the start of the competition season I have commisioned a new paragliding trophy (see attached).

The trophy is "Chief Wind Technician" and is for the Fun Class winner of the Auckland Regional Paragliding Championship.


Hopefully it will find it's first rightful owner next weekend.

How to thermal with others

What is the best way to find a thermal?

Answer. Go where you can see other gliders climbing.

Having other gliders flying the same direction you are is the easiest and surest way of covering big distances quickly. But you do need to know how to make it work for you rather than being a scary disaster. So if you haven't flown in competitions before have a look at the "thermalling rules". Just go to the competitions page and download the attachment.
