2021年に延期された2020年のフランス大会は開催地がフランス国内でChalons からMontluçon-Guéretに開催地が変更の方向で調整が進んでいます。2021年ドイツ大会については当初の開催地のStendal で開催予定です。
World and European Championship Schedule Revised Due to COVID19
Following the postponement of the 2020 WGCs in Germany and France, the IGC Bureau has decided to postpone the entire FAI World Gliding Championship schedule, as well as the European Gliding Championships, with one year. See also the remarks below.
* The 36th FAI WGC 18 Meter, 20 Meter Multi-seat and Open Class will take place in Stendal, Germany in July 2021.
* The 36th FAI WGC 15 Meter, Standard and Club Class will take place in Montluçon, France in August 2021. Unfortunately Chalons was unable to host the event in 2021. The French Gliding Association (FFVP) has in collaboration with the club in Montluçon presented a revised bid, that has been reviewed by the IGC manager and accepted by the IGC Bureau. The competition area is flatland, prices, entry fee etc. are as in the original bid from Chalons. FFVP and IGC will work closely with the organizers to assure the quality of the event. You will find the bid attached to this mail.
* To compensate for the one year delay of the Junior World Gliding Championships, the 5th European Gliding Championships in Pociunai, Lithuania, has been moved forward to July 2021. The competition will be open for junior pilots from abroad.
* The 4th Pan-American Gliding Championships in Luis Eduardo Magalhaes, Brazil remains in 2021.
* The entire 2021 program has been delayed to 2022.
* The entire 2022 program has been delayed to 2023, but please not, that the dates for The 37th WGC 15 Meter, Standard and Club Class in Narromine remain unchanged in January 2023. This separates the WGC in Australia from the IGC in Uvalde TX. USA with 18 months.
* The 5th Pan-American Gliding Championships in Hutchinson KS. USA remain in 2023.
* The 2023 program moves to 2024. The Organizers of the JWGC in Ostrow have not yet confirmed the proposed new dates.
The entire program is attached to this mail. The FAI/IGC calendar will be updated ASAP.
I would like to thank the organizers of future championships for their flexibility and cooperation with this significant rescheduling. It has been a pleasure working with you.
As a consequence, the IGC Bureau will not call for new bids for the 2021 Plenary in Copenhagen. The 2024 WGCs have been assigned by this shift.
Best wishes – stay safe and healthy,
IGC bid manager
