The Advance BCC is open to all flying members of the British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (BHPA).
Designed as a friendly, BHPA coaching club level competition, the focus is more on fun, safety and mentored team flying than out-and-out racing. The worthy winners in 2016 were Grupa 303 with the Avon Club as valiant runners up. The Spirit of the BCC award went to Christine Gamblin of SE Wales and eleven 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.
