Cloud flying: the penalty given by Condor applies (60 points per minute). Mid-air collisions: pilots can repair their gliders in the air without any penalty.

Non-finishers & Disconnected pilots
Non-finishers will get points for the achieved distance if the pilot landed safely. In case of crash he will get zero points. When pilot is disconnected during race because of his internet connection, he MUST sent/upload an IGC file via our website or e-mail at wnsvirtualsoaring.eu to be scored. IGC file must be sent max. 6 hours after race starts.

Scoring & Champions
Each WNS task will be scored/calcutated to 1000 points. We will use DAeC index for scoring. The pilot who achieves the highest cumulative score in 1/2 of all the races will be the quarter champion. When total number of races in quarter is an odd number, the 1/2 of the races will be rounded up.
