Africa Cup 2018

Africa Cup-Microlight Weekend 2018 Hotel Numbi, Hazyview

Some history about our wonderful competition. Who knows why we even have this competition and why it is called the Africa Cup?
Well in the dark days of apartheid the Microlight pioneers in South Africa wanted to compete at the world championships that year. They put together a team and then tried to register their attendance with the world body. Their participation was rejected because of the apartheid laws and the subsequent exclusion of South Africa from world sport.
Undeterred the team then held a competition in Lesotho to select a team to represent the entire continent of Africa. It was a great idea but the team was again rejected. I believe one pilot came from Zimbabwe but that was not enough.
So the Africa Cup was born. These days the emphasis is on rookie pilots to encourage them to compete in any competition along with the wise old men of the sport.

RATE FREEZE – PARTICIPATE AT LAST YEARS RATE
The status of the current economic climate - cold, foggy and misty, resulted in us freezing our rates for this years “Numbi – Africa Cup” event.
