PWCA’s Ruth Jessop reports on task 3 of the World Cup in Pico do Gaviao, Brazil: “With another day of blue skies and sunshine, a 104.5 km task was set taking the pilots on a tour around the plains, returning to goal near Andradas.

Today had everything, great conditions, lift, convergence, sink, some super strong thermals, but at the same time, it was not too turbulent or bumpy. Flying with 50 vultures at the last turn point was the high point for many.
Unfortunately, overall race leader, Chigwon Won (Enzo 3), set off too early on his final glide so had to stop and climb. His late arrival in goal changed the overall leaders, giving three pilots in first place, making it still very much anyone’s race.

But for the youngest pilot in the race, Noah Locatelli (Zeno), leading out on the way to goal for a whole minute was, for any 17-year-old wanna be World Champion, a dream come true.

The goal field was a very busy place for four minutes as the top fifty all arrived within minutes of each other.

At the end of a lovely cross-country flight, with stunning scenery, 92 pilots made goal.
Average speed of the fastest pilot around the course was 32km/h”

Task 4 is a 100 Km Race to goal with many pilots already in goal. Report coming soon, stay tuned.

“To kick off the Pico Do Gaviao 2019 Paragliding World Cup, a 70km task, zigzagging south west across the rolling hills, was set.

As soon as everyone got into the air, the first day nerves were blown away by the great thermals which, if anything, were a bit stronger than expected. The cycles were short and the ceiling was high, which made reading the clouds really important. There was very little wind until the last part of the race. In summary, perfect paragliding conditions.

From the beginning, there were different route options which divided the gaggles up. The end part of the race was nail biting as the lead gaggle got low and stuck and were overhauled by those behind.

107 pilots made goal within 1 hour and 7 minutes of each other”
Task 1 winners: Korean pilot Chingwon Won (Enzo 3), local pilot Marcella Uchoa (Enzo 3) @marcellauchoa and the Ozone Team.

The new GEO 6 is the lightweight version of the Buzz Z6. It delivers high amounts of passive safety in a lightweight adventure wing with True Performance throughout the entire speed range.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Modern construction techniques and a clever use of materials have saved 350 grams of weight compared to its predecessor, and all of the performance gains made in the Z6 project have been directly passed on.

The Pico do Gaviao Paragliding World Cup will take place in Brazil from the 7th to the 14th of September.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The enormously successful 2017 Pico do Gaviao World Cup confirmed Brazil as the land of seven-day competitions. In the words of Richard Gallon, 'Pico do Gaviao is such an amazing launch, take-offs in every direction. So many task options. Every day we do a completely different task with a great variety of flat land and relief flying. You have to fly by feeling as there are no clouds to help you. The Brazilians are really teaching us how to fly'!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Two years ago, Brazilian pilots took the top five trophies and nine out of the top fifteen places. But the Europeans dominated the recent Baixo Guandu Super Final. Who will rule the skies and fly away with the best thermals in Brazil this time?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Equal numbers of Brazilian and French pilots are taking part, proof of the increase in world class Brazilian pilots.
Seven overall World Cup winners and three ladies’ winners will be taking part, all keen to notch up another victory. At least half of those in the thermals above Pico do Gaviao will be there chasing one of the few precious places left for the Super Final.
Pilots from thirty different countries will be competing, showing the popularity of Brazil for Paragliding World Cups, combining great skies, big friendly smiles and generous thermals!
In addition to the PWCA app and the pwca.org website (which now includes photos of the pilots) with the live Commentary, tracking and scores, the local organisers have also made an excellent app. Search for: PWC Andradas.

Stay tuned for more.
