Welcome to the Advance British Club Challenge (BCC) website.

Images from recent BCC rounds

The Advance BCC is open to all flying members of the British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (BHPA).

Designed as a friendly, BHPA recreational club level competition, the focus is firmly on safety, enjoyment and mentored team flying to aid pilot development, than simply out-and-out distance racing. The worthy winners in 2018 were the South West Wales Soaring Club, narrowly beating South East Wales who were once again valiant runners up. The Spirit of the BCC award went to Chris Williams of UK Armed Forces and an impressive thirty five development prizes were awarded for personal best flights or first XCs during the season.

Please visit our Yahoo Group and our Facebook Group to receive updates on forthcoming BCC rounds together with reviews and images from completed events.

Registration is open for the 2019 season.

We were fortunate enough to have the following clubs taking part during the 2018 event: Avon, Cloudbase, Dover and Folkestone, Kernow Club, Sky Surfers, Southern Club, South East Wales, South West Wales, UK Armed Forces, Wessex and XC Junkies. We look forward to welcoming them and other clubs to join us for the 2019 season.
