Simplifying the Sporting Code for Giding: Introduction

Postit Sporting Code CIAM

At the 2013 IGC Plenary Meeting in Papendal the Sporting Code Committee put forward a discussion paper suggesting that it was time to make a radical revision of the Sporting Code for Gliding. This was accepted and the Committee has now begun the work to achieve this.

The Committee will publish a series of several papers each dealing with a segment of the Code, to avoid confusion. The papers are not, and should not be taken, as official proposals. It is intended that a number of Year 1 proposals should come from the responses to these papers.
