April 2022 - BPCup Update
We are currently working on plans to hold a shortened version of the competition this year but to hold a full programme in 2023
The UK based paragliding competition for pilots in the non-skygod category. Our aims are – flying, fun and learning – in that order!
Why enter the BPCup?
It is a friendly competition which gives you an opportunity to hone the skills needed to fly XC successfully. You will be assisted to program your instruments and fly competition tasks, learning in the process that flying with other pilots and having a goal makes XC flying so much more enjoyable. If you struggle with the technicalities of instruments, don’t worry, there will be offers of help. In a competition you will discover that the Meet Director takes care of all the onerous weather forecast interpretation, site choice and task setting, leaving you to just take off and fly the task – simple! Time permitting there will be a daily task debrief, led by either the Meet Director or a senior experienced competition pilot. You will have a great time, meeting a lot of fellow pilots while learning an incredible amount of new skills to help make your flying better and safer. If you are tempted but still not sure then take a look at some of our previous years reports, we had such fun. (Photo is climbing out at Wether Fell - 2019 Dales Round)
