Euroglide 2020 postponed

April 6, 2020

Initially we cancelled the Euroglide scheduled for June 2020 due to all the restrictions related to Covid-19.
We had a lot of positive reactions to this decision, but also a lot of suggestions for an Euroglide in 2021.

We have decided not to cancel this year's Euroglide, but to postpone the Euroglide 2020 to June 2021.
Euroglide 2020 will most likely be organised from Monday June 21st until Friday July 2nd, 2021.

All participants have the choice to keep their registered state or to withdraw their registration until the end of this month.
This page shows the registered participants, but will be updated when withdrawals come in.

From May up to and inclusive November the Euroglide committee will not follow up any correspondence concerning participation.

We hope all of you will fly again soon, keep safe, stay healthy and we hope to see you for the Euroglide in 2021.

Euroglide 2020 cancelled!

March 24, 2020

Dear Euroglide participants,

This is the message all of you have expected.
The Corona is taking a big toll already and more is to come.
Yesterday the Dutch governement has put a ban on all events of more than 2 people for the period upto June 1st.
With this outlook the possibility to be back to a normal situation where a Euroglide is possible has diminished to zero. So we have decided to cancel the Euroglide for the year 2020.

In the second half of the year we will think about the future of the Euroglide. Euroglide will be back and we will let you know when that will be by November 1st.

Now our full energy will go to keeping up our personal health and that of our family and friends.

We hope sincerly that all participants, pilots and teams succeed in taking this big hurdle, so we can meet eachother again in good shape in the next Euroglide.

We wish you all the best for the coming months.

The organisation team of the Euroglide.

Update Euroglide vs COVID-19

March 21, 2020

Dear Euroglide participants,

As we are preparing for Euroglide version 2020 we have seen the world turn into distress. With Corona infections and victim numbers increasing, we have to shift priority to our personal health and pay attention to family and friends.
However we keep up a positive mind and hope that we still can run the Euroglide 2020 by the end of June. The organisation team will decide and publish the final decision on the go or nogo ultimately May 1st.

On behalf of the organisation team, keep safe!

The picture shows the intended trajectory of about 2500 kilometers. With the turning points Venlo - Szczecin Dabie (PL) – Fricktal Schupfart (CH) – Strakonice (CZ) - Venlo.
Deviations of this plan will be possible until the briefing day to deal with airspace limitation or other last minute obstacles.
Also the intention is to add one extra turning point per class on the first leg to avoid crowded airfields after the first day of flying.
