Mavrovo Open 2016

Since its beginning, Paragliding club - Condor conducted 3 successful projects that were financed by local and foreign donors, focusing on the promotion of paragliding as a form of extreme sports. In 2012, under the name “Gostivar paragliding cup 2012”, Condor organized the first international contest in precise landing. The contest was visited by 46 pilots-contestants from Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo, Turkey and Bulgaria. The event was widely recognized by all paragliders in Macedonia, as well as the locals. The contest took a traditional character and was held in the years to come, respectively 2013 and 2014. In June 2015, an USAID project allowed Condor to organize a big paragliding contest, named “Gostivar Open 2015”. This contest gave birth to the “Korito” flying track in Suva Gora, which was inaugurated by the Deputy US Ambassador, the Mayor of Gostivar and the president of Condor, M-r Mentor Saiti.

This year, the event will be held by the lake of Mavrovo. It will bring in pilots from across Europe and Asia as well as some of the most famous names in the acrobatic and precise paragliding. The official paragliding competition in ‘precise landing’ is organized in compliance with the strict regulations of the FAI ( Fédération Aéronautique Internationale).

In addition to the paragliding contest, a cycling tour around lake Mavrovo and an open air party wilth live bands and DJs from the region will be taking place during the event. The cycling tour and competition will include all bicycling clubs from the Republic of Macedonia along with few from the neighborhood.
