CerviaCup 2018 - english version PDF Stampa Email

The CerviaCup 2018, a competition valid for STACK Italian Championship 2018, will run on April 28th to April 30th, 2018 at Pinarella di Cervia (RA), during the 38th International Kite Festival, organized by Artevento kiting club.

The CerviaCup 2018 competition will be named to Tullia Trevisan and the Novice competition will be named to Luigi Briglia, dear friends of STACK Italy prematurely died.

The competition for Experienced and Master pilots will be Open and it will take place according to the Mix reduced competition formula (please see International Sport Kite Rules Book - Version 3.0): that is compulsory figures and ballet routine. Depending on available time and weather, there will be two complete races and the final classification will be calculated based on the best absolute score per discipline. Instead, the competition for Novice pilots will consist of compulsories and technical precision routine. For the Novice competition too, if possible, two races will be played and the final scores will be calculated as mentioned above for the Open competition.



The subscription fees, requested as refund of expenses, are the following:

  • DLI, MLI Experienced and Master: € 25.00
  • DLP, MLP, DLT, MLT: € 35.00
  • DLI, MLI Novice: € 10.00

There are the following discounts for pilots who register simultaneously in multiple disciplines:

  • Individuals registered for an Individual discipline, €10 off the registration fee for the alternate INDIVIDUAL discipline or €7.5 off the registration fee for any pair or team discipline up to a maximum of €15
    per pair or team
  • Pairs paying full registration fee for a Pair discipline, €15 off the registration fee for the alternate PAIR discipline or €15 off the registration fee for any TEAM discipline (maximum discount €15)
  • Teams paying full registration fee for Team disciplines, €30 off the registration fee for the alternate TEAM discipline.

Registration fees are payable in cash only at the registration desk (see below). Please bring the correct amount. NO PAY - NO FLY.

Registration to competition will be closed on April 15th, 2018; STACK Italy reserves the right to not accept registrations over that date. In the case a registration request received over that date will be accepted, the pilot registration fees will be doubled. Because of insurance issues, unfortunately foreign pilots can't register after that date even with the payment of double registration fee. On the contrary, this rule is not applicable for the Novice italian pilots and accordingly they will not sustain any penalties.

Because of italian laws, participation is restricted to STACK Italy members only or other STACK national bodies members.

In order to enable the STACK Italy Board of Directors to grant the membership request in time to participate in the competition, the membership request for new STACK Italy members (domestic or foreign) who want to participate in the competition must be formalized not later than April 15th, 2018 .
