Paragliders to take off from Son Tra

Update: June, 05/2013 - 11:00

Fliers from clubs nationwide will compete in a paragliding race on Son Tra Peninsula in Da Nang on June 29-30.

Around 35 pilots will race from the top of Son Tra Mountain (693m above sea level) to My Khe Beach, the city's vice-director of culture, sport and tourism Nguyen Phuc Linh said on Monday.

A qualifying round and final round will precede the championships. Competitors will have one or two days to train before the race.

Paragliding is a recreational and competitive sport that took off in the country 10 years ago.

Last year, the coastal city hosted the International Paramotor Race, which drew thousands of spectators. — VNS
