NARROMINE CHOSEN TO HOST WORLD GLIDING CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 2023

THE WORLD GLIDING CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR STANDARD, 15 METER AND CLUB CLASS ARE AT NARROMINE AUSTRALIA IN NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2023

The IGC has agreed that the Standard Class, 15m Class and Club Class World Gliding Championships will now be held at Narromine NSW Australia in November/December 2023, which makes timing more convenient for International teams to ship gliders to Narromine and fits in better with European holidays.

The soaring conditions in Narromine are excellent at that time of year.

The official competition dates are as follows:

Practice period from 26th November 2023
Official Practice period 28th November to 1st December 2023

Open day 2nd December 2023
Competition 3rd to 16th December 2023

*****

A two week PRE-WORLDS event for Standard Class, 15m Class and Club Class is planned for 2022 during the last week in November and the first week in December 2022.

Narromine was the venue for the 2015 Junior World Championship, which was very successful, flying on 10 out of a possible 11 contest days.
It was the venue where Australian glider pilot Matthew Scutter became World Champion in Standard Class.

Narromine Gliding Club is honoured to be selected by the IGC and we look forward to hosting an amazing gliding competition.

If you would like to be a part of the organisation and running of this World Championship Competition please go to the Contact Us page and tell us about yourself and how you can help.
