Club Class Handicaps

The handicaps for Club Class in international  competitions were updated at the IGC pllenary meeting ain March.

The handicaps were last adjusted in 2008. At that time it was decided to review them again at a later date.
This change is a result of that review.
In summary
  • Handicaps can never be fair in all circumstances
  • The data shows that the handicaps since 2008 favour flapped gliders
  • They had underestimated the improved climb and performance due to flaps
