The rules are simple, tag as many swimming pools while paragliding. Points for each swimming pool are calculated on their distance from launch eg 50km = 50 points. Double points are awarded for landing and doing a lap in the pool, but only one relaunch is permitted per day. Bonus points are awarded for documenting the experience in a creative and entertaining way.
