24) Re-Launches
A re-launch may be awarded only for the following reasons:
* Wind Speed:The wind speed exceeds the specified limit during the time of 30 seconds before the competitor touches the landing point or Chief judge considers that the target approach becomes difficult because of sever change of wind direction. The competitor will be automatically offered a re-launch. The competitor may choose to accept the score achieved or accept a re-launch. The competitor must make a decision immediately.
*Target Obscured:The target is obscured during a competitor’s final approach and the competitor does not attempt to land on the target. The competitor may indicate (point or call out) the obstruction as he lands.
*Judges Disagree:The judges are unable to agree an accurate score for any reason.
* Safety Reasons:The competitor changes his flight plans for safety reasons to avoid another competitor in the air, and does not attempt to land on the target.
* Distraction:If there is any significant external distraction which demonstrably affects the competitor’s target approach.
* Judges’ Discretion:At judges’ discretion on the grounds of a technical problem or abnormal conditions. This may be afailure with equipment(e.g. a broken steering line or a big tuck during the flight) which is not a result of the competitor’s poor pre-flight check, or massive sink such that the competitor is unable to reach the target or arrives with insufficient height to make a reasonable final approach. A re-launch may be authorized provided that the competitor does not attempt to fly to the target.
* A competitor may only request a re-launch following the disputed flight by applying to the Judge at the target before signing for his score. The competitor must register his request for re-launch with the recording judge before communicating with any other person (with the exception of the Chief judge). At the time a re-launch is awarded the competitor’s score for the disputed flight will be cancelled. Re-launch shall take place at the end of the full round in which they were awarded, or at the discretion of the Competition Director, during that round. If a re-launch is not awarded and the competitor refuses to sign for the score this will be deemed to be a complaint and the time at which the complaint arose will be recorded and notified to the competitor.
25) Competitor separation
Competitors in flight have to separate themselves by height to ensure safe and unobscured landing at the target. Overtaking at low altitude above the target is not allowed and may lead to maximum score penalty; it may be regarded as dangerous flying conduct (item 31).
26) Signaling not to approach the target

The official signal for competitors in the air to fly away from the target for safety reason is that a person or persons at the Measuring Field will clearly wave a red signal flag.
27) Definition of Final Approach
The competitor is deemed to have started the final approach when, having turned to face the target, the event judge considers that the competitor has made his final commitment to making an approach to the target and is not expecting to have to make any significant changes of direction. Any further maneuvers undertaken by the competitor from this position will nit detract from the above factor.
28) Wind Speed Limitations
Maximum wind speed allowed to run a round is 6.0m/s. When the wind speed is expected to exceed this limit during a round, the round will be halted until the wind has eased sufficiently. The upper winds, which are not measurable, are not taken into consideration.
29) Target Obstruction
The competitor will be entitled to unobstructed visibility of the target during the final approach.
30) Outlandings
A competitor landing outside the target area must report to the Judging Team as soon as possible. Failure to do so may invalidate any claim for a re-launch.
31) Penalties
a) A competitor who is judged to have done cloud flying will be given maximum score for the round.
b) A competitor who is judged to have done a dangerous flying will be given maximum score for the round.
Definition of dangerous flying
Stall, hard landing, disturbance of other players etc. Competition Director dicides these.
Competition Director gives yellow card(caution) first time, red card(disqualification) second time.
32) Event and Round Validity

32-1) Round Validity
To count as a valid round all competitors shall have been given the opportunity to have at least one competition flight in that round. The results obtained in any round will count towards the score only when a round has been completed (i.e. when all of the competitors have received a score or a penalty). In the event of a break in the middle of a round, the competition will be resumed from where it left off.
32-2) Event Validity
The event will be validated as a J-league when at least one round is validated. However to be valid as Japan Championship at least 3 rounds must be validated.
33) The winner
Shall be the competitor gaining the lowest aggregated score.
34) Guidelines for Assistance to a competitor in danger
All competitors must pack their gliders immediately after landing: a glider lying open on the ground means "I need help!"
A competitor witnessing any kind of accident must try to inform the organizer as soon as possible using the radio.
Calling procedure: "MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY".
Give details of:
Name and number of the competitor reporting the accident
Position of the victim (GPS coordinates)
Name and number of competitor in trouble
Description of glider color and model in trouble.
The competitors who stopped the task and supported rescue actions will be awarded Re-launch at the discretion of the Competition Director.

35) Score Measurement
Competitors will be scored on the distance in centimeters between the landing point (i.e. the first point of ground contact with a foot or feet) and the edge of the dead center disc. The score shall be 0 cm, if the landing point is at the dead center disc. The score will be rounded up to nearest whole number.
* If the competitor lands outside the measuring field he scores a maximum score, which is the measuring field radius.
* Landing has to be made on the feet. If a competitor falls at landing, he will receive a maximum score. A fall means if any part of the body (excluding the feet) or equipment (excluding speed system, stirrup or tow yoke) touches the ground before the wing does
* If a competitor lands with both feet together or lands in such a manner that the foot’s first point of contact cannot be defined (heel, tip…), then the furthest point of the footprint is measured.
36) Competitor’s score
The score of a competitor shall be the aggregate of all the scores achieved bt that competitor. When five (5) or more valid rounds are completed, the worst one (1) score is dropped.
37) Tied Scores
In the event of any tie between the first three competitors, both (or all) will have an additional tie-breaker flight.
If they cannot fly by wheather condhition, the pilot who got many 0cm(or 1cm...) wins.
38) Recording of Scores
A competitor who did not fly is indicated DNF on the score sheet and accorded the maximum score. A competitor who is disqualified for that round will be indicated DSQ on the score sheet and accorded the maximum score. A competitor who withdraw for illness or accident will be accorded a maximum score for all subsequent rounds not flown. A competitor who is disqualified from the event shall no longer be counted as a competitor for the purpose of scoring.
39) Automatic Measuring Device
Scores up to minimum 15 cm are measured by the automatic measuring device. A certain pressure must be applied by the competitor to the automatic measuring device to make it record the score. If an automatic measuring device is found to be defective or not reset and the first point of ground contact has been on it, judges may measure that competitor’s score manually provided they are able to do so with consistency and certainty.
40) Validation of Scores
A soon as is practical after the end of a round the recorder will post the scores from the round (with the posting date and time clearly identified) on the main briefing board labeled PROVISIONAL. Any protest with the scores must be lodged within the time limit defined in the local regulations. If there is no protest by the end of the time limit the round will be declared as OFFICIAL.
