Western Cape Regionals 2023 Cape Gauntlet

Worcester, South Africa,   January 14, 2023 – January 20, 2023

Entry List

Happy New Year !

I have just generated the competition entry lists for the Regionals from the entries shown on the glidercomps web page.


Will competitiors please send a sample igc file from their flight recorders sometime in the next 10 days, include an engine run if you have a sustainer engine.

please send files igcscorer@outlook.com

Please do NOT change filenames to something you think would be helpful (It isn't, and you will be penalised during the comp - if only in beer!)

If you must use a non IGC approved recorder please ensure that its id is unique ( for XCSoar I would suggest XCS-reg, where 'reg' is your initials or glider registration or competition number) I will get grumpy if I get any that are XCS-AAA !


I recommend reading the FAI/IGC rules for competitions.  https://www.fai.org/sites/default/files/sc3a_2022.pdf and any local rules when they are published.

Section 5.4 refers to flight recorders and my favourite part Section 8.7


Competition Waypoints and Airspace will be published here before the competition starts.
