The 16th edition of the Ozone Chabre Open has come to a close.

Run by the team from Chabre Vol Libre in Laragne France and under the watchful eye of meet director Jocky Sanderson this now legendary event has been running since 2005.

With 18 nations represented, 120 pilots competed over a week in which difficult weather conditions saw a good practice task followed by 3 valid competition tasks.

The week included daily pilot briefings, detailed de-briefs, several paragliding related talks, reserve parachute repacks as well as various other social events. When the weather prevented competition tasks to be set there were ample opportunities to free fly at other sites in the area.

Overall winner was Mak Hayman flying an Ozone Photon.

The week finished with the prizegiving, a dinner and a tombola which saw the main prize of an Ozone paraglider go to Gavin Foster. The evening finished off with music and dancing.

This friendly, stress free paragliding cross country competition has been supported since its inception by Ozone, Cross Country magazine as well as local and regional councils.

Congrats to all the pilots and cheers from the OZONE team.
