The Ozone Chabre Open

June 10, 2006




It’s ON! The first task of the Ozone Chabre Open has just finished… the scores aren’t even calculated yet. With cloudbase currently at over 3000m and a brilliant forecast for the week, it looks like we’re in for another excellent comp. Last year we flew 6 out of 6 days, with every task valid, and we hope to do the same this year. The Chabre Vol Libre crew have done an excellent job with the organization, and the event is running as smooth as can be, even with 120 pilots (many of whom have little competition experience). Of course, with so many pilots returning from last year, and so many planning to attend next year’s Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge in the Dominican republic, very soon every competitor here will be a seasoned veteran!

The aim of the Ozone Chabre Open is to be the perfect environment for experienced pilots to begin flying competition, in a relaxed and educational environment. Every night there are educational lectures by top pilots like Russ Ogden and Jocky Sanderson, and plenty of entertainment throughout the week. This morning, World Paramotor Champion, Mathieu Rouanet, treated us all to an incredible paramotor acro display and then flew with his new toy- a 150m long windsock he tows around the sky!

Stay tuned for more news during the week, we’ll try to post it as it comes. For daily results and more info on the comp, go to www.flylaragne.com
