CerviaCup/EuroCup 2013 Logo


The first competition of STACK Italian Championship 2013 will run on April 25th to April 28th, 2013 at Pinarella di Cervia (RA), during the 33rd International Kite Festival, organized by Artevento kiting club.

Warning: this year CerviaCup will take place simultaneously with the STACK EuroCup 2013. The two competitions, CerviaCup and EuroCup, will take place on the same field and with the same panel of judges. It is therefore a unique opportunity to participate, either as pilots or as spectators, at an event of high international standard. Among other things, the rules for participation are very beneficial for the Italian pilots (for italian pilots we mean: all registered pilots in STACK Italy).

The foreign pilots can participate only in the EuroCup or in the CerviaCup as Novice. Registrations to the EuroCup for foreign pilots have been closed on March 13rd, 2013.

All the italian pilots, Master and Experienced, will participate at the same time both the CerviaCup and EuroCup. The deadline for the registration of italian Master and Experienced pilots will be extended by about a month (see below).

All the italian pilots (Master and Experienced) and foreign pilots therefore participate in EuroCup, which will be drawn up for a single classification. The ranking of CerviaCup instead will be composed by italian pilots only.

The competition for Novice pilots will follow different rules. Novice pilots, italian and foreign, will not take part in the Eurocup and so they will be drawn up for the CerviaCup classification only. The registration deadline and fees are differentiated from Novice to Master and Experienced pilots (see below). Also this year's Novice competitions will be named to Luigi Briglia, dear friend of STACK prematurely died.

Most likely the competition will take place according to the standard scheme: that is compulsory figures, precision and ballet routines (for Experienced and Master pilots only). But STACK Italy, the SIEC and the judges reserve the right at any time to choose a reduced competition formula (only compulsory figures + ballet), based on the number of registered pilots and weather conditions that occur during the competition weekend.

The competition will be figures and ballet only (no technical precision routine required). Only Novice competitors will perform the technical routine (no ballet).

  • DLI, MLI Experienced and Master: € 20,00

In the event that the CD is accepted, the pilot should indicate, before flying the competition, the track number to be performed and the CD must be tested to make sure that no read errors will occur (often with burned CDs ).
