ukraine carpathian cup summary
Category : Paragliding
Headin to the Ukraine i had mixed expectations as many people talked about really bad experiences.
First and only mistake was to choose the road to Sambor. Omg what a mission, the were more holes in the road then there was asfalt. After several hrs of batteling the crappy road we reached sambor and headed south towards the Zakarpathian region.
After many hrs we managed to reach the camp and our base for the week. Sleeping at the base of a 1500m hill was great, no bugs, sauna and fresh mountain streams.
Opening ceramony and seeing friends from Perfect Fly Cup. Great feast was prepared and we partied till around midnight.
The entire time that we were there we had flyable weather. Everyday there was some one that managed to reach goal.
Absolutly great atmosphere, the people are amazing and the teraine is spectacular. Can’t wait to get back there soon.
Big thanks go out to all the people involved in organization and to all the pilots and their families for taking us in with open arms and hearts.
