Refueling

Definition:

REFUELING is a pair maneuver in which the follower docks a kite inside the lines of the leader's kite and the two kites fly as a single entity. The direction of entry does not matter. Smooth entry while both kites are moving forward will earn a higher score than entry while one kite is stalled.

Key elements:

Clean entry into the lines, without any „bump“. Flight together as a unit for minimum two seconds

Judges view:

Nice entry between the lines of the first kite. 2 seconds minimum, more than a straight line flight.

Most common errors:

Several "bounces" into the lines of the first kite. The contact gets a bit lost during the flight. OUT should be deliberate.
