Sirály cup 2014, aerotow hanggliding competition

This year the dates are 18-19-20 of July.
As in earlier years the competition will be done in parallel with a similar event for trikes. This is the reason why the dates are fixed.
The environment is appropriate for beginner XC pilots also and for the general public interested in flight. The weather conditions have been good in the recent years so we hope that this year won’t be an exception. In case of bad weather as a plan B we will organize spot landing competition and/or we will go the beach of the lake Balaton. Since this is a meet organized mainly for trikes we have to respect their rules. The area is not too big winch towing won’t be possible.
