World Hang Gliding in Krushevo Postponed to 2023

In the last few days, the national aero clubs or delegated authorities of Australia, Austria, Brazil, Italy, Great Britain and the USA have informed the organisers and the CIVL that they do not intend to participate in the coming World Hang Gliding Championships to start on July 18, 2021, in Krushevo, North Macedonia. They all underline their concerns about the pandemic and the consequences on travel restrictions for persons and equipment.

Although locally all requirements are met, it is obvious that some communities are not ready to follow. With so many top nations not participating, the championships have become senseless. It is with great regret that the organisers and the CIVL have come to the conclusion that the 2021 championships will not take part and will be postponed to 2023.
