Les Gaz'Ailes" paragliding club in Le Lac is organising the 2024 edition of the "Bornes to Fly" event on Saturday 18 May 2024, the first round of the French Championship.
The Bornes To Fly is a friendly race combining paragliding and walking, in the tradition of the famous X-Alps. Pilots take part in a three-day course punctuated by two bivouacs in the heart of nature. The route, ranging from 100 to 250 kilometres, will be chosen by the Race Director to suit the weather conditions. To be considered as passed, the waypoints must be crossed, by flight or on foot, within a radius defined at the briefing. The list of markers to be passed will be given to the pilots by the clerk of the course at the briefing.
