British Hang Gliding Nationals 2010 and Chabre Open.
22-28 August. Laragne, France.
At the site of last year World Hang Gliding Championships we will hold this year British national competition which welcomes pilots from all nations in an FAI Cat 2 open contest.
The competition headquarters will be based at Camping de Monteglin with a full set of facilities including a restaurant next to the landing field. The village of Laragne has a vibrant central square Place de la Fontaine surrounded by shops, cafes and bars.
Laragne is situated in South East France, roughly half way between Marseille and Grenoble. It benefits from a Provence climate with mostly dry sunny weather. One of France’s best known Hang Gliding sites, Laragne-Chabre boasts exceptionally good flying conditions from April through to October. Well spaced ridges and valleys provide excellent potential for a variety of cross country flying tasks. Landing fields are abundant and valley winds are rarely a problem.
