NARROMINE CHOSEN TO HOST 2022 WORLD GLIDING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Grid

The recent IGC meeting held in Turkey has awarded the 2022/2023 Standard Class, 15m Class and Club Class World Gliding Championships to Narromine!

The 2022 World Gliding Championship will actually be held at Narromine in January 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.

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.

Training Dates 4 - 6 Jan 2023
Competition Dates 8 – 21 Jan 2023
