The Panel are delighted to announce more details of the UK leg, which you can find here.
Registration for the British Championship 2017 will open on 1st February.
The registration process for 2017 is different to previous years. Before you register for a competition, please read and understand the 2017 registration process, which you can find here.
The first round of the British Championship 2017 will be held in the UK for the first time since 2009 from Saturday 22nd July to Saturday 29th July.
Registration Saturday 22nd. First task Sunday 23rd. Last task Saturday 29th.
To make the most of the British weather, the competition will use a mobile format, akin to the North South Cup, but it will be scored formally.
The ‘base’ for the competition will ‘likely’ be in the Malvern area, but is NOT yet decided and will be confirmed as soon as is possible.
The plan is to hold prizing giving and a party at the ‘base’ on the last day of the competition Saturday 29th July.
More details to follow in the next few weeks, along with the confirmed date for opening of registration, for both rounds of the 2017 Championship.
St Andre les Alpes is confirmed as one of the venues for The British Championship 2017.
The dates are as follows:
