Details of the XC competition...

Competition dates:

Competitors should arrive Sunday the 29th of January 2006. The first task will be on Monday the 30th. Seven competition days will find us ending the comp on Sunday the 5th of February 2006.


The competition is based in San Juan de la Maguana. San Juan is a major city located in a beautiful valley in the southwestern region of the Dominican Republic. The Cordillera Central stretches out to the north, and the Sierra de Neyba to the south. The city is over 60 km inland and is about 3 hours west of Santo Domingo, the capital city, and 4 hours away from Las Americas International Airport.

Competition format:

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.


The event is designed for experienced XC pilots and also for those who are still trying to master the arts of distance flying. Accordingly, there will be five different categories:

Category 1 1 A
Category 2 1/2 B
Category 3 2 Standard C
Category 4 2/3 Performance D
Category 5 Open Class (DHV 3, comp gliders, load tested only)

The competition will score on one common open ranking, but prizes will be granted for each category equally!


Ozone will award prizes to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each class! Many harnesses, kites and other accesories will be awarded.

There will also be prizes for record breakers and day winners, and a lottery giving a glider to a lucky pilot!
