Canadian National HG Championships
Jul 3 – Jul 9 all-day

The 2016 Canadian National Hang Gilding Championships will take place at Golden, British Colombia, from 3-9 July.

Events will be staged from the Golden Echo Adventure Ranch (GEAR) in Nicholson BC, with tasks being flown from the launch at Mount 7.

Organisers say:

If you’ve never flown Mount 7 or the Columbia valley, this is an opportunity to hang out with some very friendly pilots, take in some breathtaking scenery and experience some epic flying.
