The GIN Wide Open is first and foremost a fun paragliding event. It’s less about flying the latest hot-ships and more about achievable tasks for cross country pilots flying EN-B and EN-C wings. It’s less about winning and more about fun flying in a stress-free and supportive environment.
The venue for 2017 is Kruševo, Macedonia. Registration will open on January 29th 2017 at 14:00 CET (13:00 UK time, 14:00 Central Europe)
But wait. For 2017 there is more!
The Naviter Open. Take your flying to the next level!
The GIN Wide Open is now in its 5th year and has become the most popular paragliding competition in the world! Pilots love the fun and friendly atmosphere, the in-depth daily briefings and the easy access to some of the best pilots in the world. Whilst some pilots have found the GIN Wide Open to be the perfect springboard into competition flying, others see it as the ideal environment in which to improve their XC skills or simply enjoy flying in an international friendly setting where the flying and social experience counts for much more than the results.
Why a NEW competition?
The GIN Wide Open has become SO popular that for every pilot that we accept, we’re turning several away. By creating an additional competition we hope to give you a better chance of grabbing one of the much sought-after places. The Naviter Open is a competition in its own right, but will share many philosophies with the GIN Wide Open.
You can enter just one, or enter both. Your choice!
