The 2017 Worlds in Italy has begun!

Monte Avena, situated in the south-west of the Dolomites mountain range is the main stage for the FAI World Paragliding Championship 2017, this is the first time that Italy hosts this event.

Yesterday the organizers decided to move the first task to Bassano due to the weather, where they had great conditions for a 77,8km task. The winners of the day were Pierre Remy from France and Silvia Buzzi Ferraris from Italy, both flying Enzo 3s.

Today’s task is a 95 km Race to Goal, conditions have improved and the pilots will be taking off from the official launch in Monte Avena.
