Registration is now open for the 2016 Northern California Spring League.
The first event for the 2016 Northern California Sprint League will be held on 26th and 27th of March at Dunlap.
This league is designed for lower airtime pilots who wish to learn how to fly cross country by flying designated routes with other pilots. (More experienced pilots may wish to join the Northern California Cross Country League for flying longer tasks). Typical tasks for the SPRIINT league will be less than 30 km and will focus on more fishbowl type flying where pilots can learn how to fly cross country tasks.
The SPRINT league is open to pilots flying EN-A and EN-B gliders. Those flying with EN-C gliders are welcome to attend but may not be scored. Pilots must have a P3 or above rating, be comfortable thermaling with other pilots and be able to find a safe landing field without instruction.
The first weekend for the SPRINT league will be held on 26th and 27th March at Dunlap. Accommodation has been arranged at St Nicholas Ranch.
