Dear competitors,

Some of you might be worried about our ability to maintain the WGC in Montluçon-Guéret in August. We wish to reassure each and everyone.

The French Ministry of Sports, that supervises all sports competitions and events in France, has given us authorization to hold to WGC and considers any pilot attending the competition as a top athlete, therefore allowed to come to France and participate in an international competition.

Following the same rules, the SGP France 2021 will take place in Rion des Landes within a few days now, despite the lockdown that is currently applied in France.

Our experience of last year’s MGIG in Montluçon-Guéret has proven that strong and well-thought sanitary measures are able to keep us all safe. Indeed we had no covid cases reported during or after the event.

All the organizing team, supported by the French gliding federation and its staff, is fully committed and determined for a successful WGC.

Please note that in order to participate, each pilot must be registered and his participation paid before May 31st. As mentioned before, should the championship be canceled for pandemic reasons, all paid fees will be fully reimbursed.

All this information will be updated on the site in real time. The competition will take place according to the minimum participant conditions provided by the IGC regulations.

With more than 110 pilots who are willing to participate, this WGC is well on its way. So now it is all yours! Get ready and may the best win!
