KOWARY − WOŁOWA GÓRA ( 50N46.100   015E48.984 ) Zbigniew Deka & Przemysław Wiatr

To get to the take-off go on foot from Przełęcz Okraj (Okraj Pass) following the path 'Tabaczna Ścieżka'. It's a 30-minute walk and the path leads through almost flat terrain. The site is 1000 m above the sea level and it it's not easy. It's uneven and overgrown with grass and blueberries. You have to be careful!

The perfect wind directions to launch are 330 to 010 degrees. A landing field is 500 meters below. It's a characteristic square meadow at the foot of the mountain, a little to the right. It's surrounded with trees and there are high voltage wires at the end of it . So pay attention while landing! If you have enough altitude, it's better to choose Rudnik's landing area which is a little further to the north-east.

Wołowa Góra is a thermally active mountain. Depending on weather conditions you can either fly back over Skalny Stół and Czarna Kopa to Śnieżka, or the opposite direction: a little into the wind to Rudnik to make use of its potential. When you feel no wind on the take-off, make sure it isn't light S, SE wind blowing. Wołowa works best in N, NW winds. I definitely wouldn't advise you to take off in the more easterly wind (more than 020 degrees).
