*Following anticipations of the triggering of the beacon around the CPs and certain non-passage to the exact coordinates of the CPs, this year the passage to the exact coordinates of the CPs is compulsory. Failure to pass to the exact coordinates of the CPs will lead to an out-of-classification. We are not here to impose penalties, we are not interested in that, but we want an equal test for everyone.
