Although this HTML file and data converted into other GPS formats are supposed to be as accurate as possible, each competitor has to check what actually is in his flight recorder or flight computer.
Paper documentation distributed by Organizers, as well as possible corrections specified at briefings, are the only authorized reference.

In "Type" field, A stands for Airfield, D for glider airfield (and S for start, T for Turn points)

A list of off-field landing sites and a list of turning points are also available :

The off-field landing sites data and coordinates are for information only and in no way can the organizers or the land-owners be liable in case of accident.

For some areas there is an agreement with the owner, for the others there isn't, thus no guarantee relative to safety of landing may be given.

Some fields are unusable at certain periods of the year (high crops, crops stocked on site, etc.). Prior flying and walking inspections are essential for some zones.

More complete information (officially agreed areas, photographs, precautions, fields information, procedures) will be available on site in a special booklet.

The pilot-in-command (and he alone) is responsible for the preparation and the carrying out of his flight. Therefore it is always his responsibility choosing an appropriate emergency field to make a safe landing.

Thanks to John Leibacher, who has created and maintains a Worldwide Soaring Turnpoint Exchange, you can find these turnpoints, airfields and off-fields areas in files of suitable format for almost every GPS unit, logger or flight computer as well as a map and even sunset times !
