The Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge has the most open and simple format possible. It's all about flying XC the way you love to fly! There are no tasks, no goals and no windows...
After a general briefing on the flying sites, local conditions, and retrieve procedures, pilots will arrive at takeoff everyday for a weather briefing and will be free to takeoff whenever they consider appropriate. They will fly XC either alone or in groups, as they wish, and will choose their course with a maximum of three turn points.
Turn points will not need to be declared beforehand, allowing competitors to make dynamic decisions during their flight, according to the evolution of the conditions.
The scoring software automatically calculates the best distance for each GPS track and scores points for each kilometer.
Further details on the format of the Ozone Caribbean XC Challenge are given on the Rules page.
