The Advance BCC is a British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) Paragliding Competitions Panel endorsed event, open to paragliding Flying Members of the BHPA.
Designed as a friendly, BHPA recreational club level competition, the focus is firmly on safety, enjoyment and mentored team flying to aid paragliding pilot development, rather than higher level out-and-out racing. The worthy winners in 2019 were the Wessex Club, narrowly beating South East Wales who were our valiant runners up for the third season in a row! The Spirit of the BCC award went to (To be revealed!) and a fabulous thirty seven development prizes were awarded for personal best flights or first XCs during the season.

****Registrations are now open for the 2021 British Club Challenge. It is anticipated that it will be possible to call rounds after Monday 17 May 2021 assuming that England and Wales move to Step 3 (or the equivalent) of the Government's Coronavirus Roadmap. However, there may be restrictions on team numbers as part of our duty of care to keep our pilots safe.****
We were fortunate enough to have the following clubs taking part during the 2019 event: Avon, Derbyshire Soaring Club, Dover and Folkestone, Dunstable, Sky Surfers, Southern Club, South East Wales, South West Wales, Thames Valley, UK Armed Forces, Wessex and XC Junkies. We look forward to welcoming them and any other interested clubs to join us for the 2020 season.
