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.
