• Womens World Gliding Championship 2022

    June 9, 2022

    WWGC2022 will take place at Husbands Bosworth, from the 13th to the 27th of August.

    The world’s top glider pilots will race their gliders over 14 intense competition days and thousands of kilometers in a bid to become World Champion. Pilots from 11 countries will be attending, including France, Germany, USA and Ukraine.

    The BGA has fielded a team of 7 pilots in the 3 classes; Claudia Hill, Carol Marshall and Alison Mulder (Club Class). Sally Walker, Ayala Truelove and Fran Roberts in (Standard Class), and Jane Nash in 18m class.
    Kelly Teagle is also the Reserve for the team.

    The team have been running a Crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the competition. If you’d like to help, please consider sponsoring the Team here.

    Women Gliding and the Women’s Squad have also been instrumental in forming the Team, and inspiring more British women to fly cross-country and further their gliding aspirations!

    Team Prize Podium

    WWGC2019 Team Prize: France- Gold, UK – Silver, Italy – Bronze

    The final day

    We have received a number of questions about why on the last day of the competition the Day 10 scores changed during the day. We have also received questions about why finalizing the scores and prize giving was so delayed.  This was because each pilot in the Australian team was given a penalty for unsporting behaviour and these penalties were then protested by a number of teams which resulted in a delay finalising the scores whilst the international jury considered the protests.
