The Extreme Sports Club Sarajevo and National Aero Club of Bosnia and Herzegovina are pleased to announce the 7th annual FAI World Paragliding Accuracy Championship. We wish to invite you to participate in this spectacular event and enjoy our stunning capital of Bosnia and Herzegovinia; Sarajevo.
The contest will be held on the Olympic mountain Bjelasnica from 17.08.2013. to 25.08.2013. We expect this fabulous global sporting event to be one of the most exciting so far.
Bjelasnica mountain rises above Sarajevo, some 10 Km from the dynamic capital itself providing a sporting paradise in close proximity to an exciting capital city. Bjelasnica is a famous mountain largely due to the hugely successful 1984 Winter Olympics.
In addition to an abundance of winter sports Bjelasnica is a well known destination for many other "outdoor sports" such as: mountain biking, motocross / quad bike riding, hiking and canyoning; the settings are stunning with some of the deepest most beautiful canyons in Europe. Rakitnica river canyon for example is some 26 km long and is ranked by the National Geographic within the top 10 adventure destinations in 2012. Whilst Bjelasnica gained first place for sports and recreation location in the world.
Many paragliding pilots have made their first flights from this mountain, which offers the most excellent conditions for paragliding. The Extreme Sports Club Sarajevo have organized four successful competitions here over four consecutive years. Our plan is to implement the organization of the World Championship here not least because of the ideal wind conditions; northeast which is ideal for take-off on the northern slopes and landing in Babin do. However, it should be noted that Bjelasnica has backup options for almost all wind directions.
We announce to all competitors and visitors that The Extreme Sports Club Sarajevo is available for everything related to the competition and your visit to Sarajevo; hotel reservations, transportation and training organization. We’re aware that some of our competitor’s might like to enjoy the delights of Sarajevo during and/or around their visit. We’re more than happy to assist with this.
The world famous Sarajevo Film Festival is being held at exactly the same time as the competition. This is one of the biggest events held in BiH. So, if you plan to bring someone with you, we are sure they’ll have plenty to occupy them be it culture, nature or outdoor adventure – there is something for everyone in Sarajevo.
As we near to actual date of competition we will provide all relevant information for your perusal.
