Competition Information Update


The competition start is marching towards us at quite a rate now, we have just sent an email to all competitors with an update on the very latest information now that much of it has been finalised.

If you are competitor and have not received your email please get in touch with us, so we can find where your emails are going.

This year’s Polo shirt design has been released; we have gone for cooler to wear cotton ‘fruit of the loom’ shirts (to fit with the good weather that is going to be back soon).

Anyone can order a shirt (you don’t need to be a competitor) but we only get them made to order, so we get the right size and can personalise them. The orders need to be placed online;

The local rules have now been published. They look similar to last year’s but we have made some important changes, so it is important that competitors do understand them.

The competition waypoint file has been loaded on to soaring spot (it’s the latest BGA list so nothing complicated).

The competition airspace file is also now on soaring spot. Version 1 of the file is configured to be our best guess of the correct airspace for day 1. It is also located on the competition website

The local rules explain how we will be delivering and version controlling the file during the competition.
