• The Wide Open


Whilst in Tolmin, an EU Health Card (if you are a citizen of an EU state) entitles you to free health care and rescue, but it does not entitle you to either search and rescue, or repatriation.  Therefore, whilst we recommend that you bring your EU health card with you (if you have one), please make sure that you also bring adequate medical insurance for competition paragliding as described in the rules. <rules> 

Slovenia, where we are holding the competition, has some fantastic rescue services.  Indeed it is one important consideration we gave a heavy weight to when choosing Tolmin as the Nordic Open venue for 2017. 

There are at least 2 helicopters on stand-by in the region.  Typical response time for a helicopter is 20 mins and for mountain rescue, 15-25 mins.  The nearest hospital is located in Tolmin, 40km from HQ, although helicopter rescue is likely to take an injured pilot to either Jesenice or Ljubljana, both short flights of around 20-30 mimutes.
