in Bosnia Herzegovina. The club at Livno offers an opportunity to fly in this beautiful region between Split and Sarajevo. The soaring area is known locally as “little Namibia” reflecting the excellent soaring conditions. The club web site shows some of the possibilities for flying from Livno aeroklublivno.org

 The National FAI/SGP event in Great Britain will be held at Denbigh in North Wales. This is a relatively unknown region for sailplane racing pilots but has been extensively explored in recent years with some remarkable flights being completed. The region includes the Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales and some spectacular scenery in the Snowdon national park. The possibility to fly in ridge and wave lift will make this a very interesting contest. denbighgliding.co.uk

The 2020 French FAI/SGP national contest will be held at Rion des lands situated in south west France.  This region benefits from its southerly latitude with good early spring conditions possible.

The two southern hemisphere National FAI/SGP events will be held at sites which have considerable experience both having hosted an FAI/SGP final in recent years. Potchefstroom in South Africa offering great flatland racing and Vitacura in Chile with spectacular conditions and scenery.
Returning for another year are Varese in the pre-alps region of Northern Italy, Cerdanya in the Spanish eastern Pyrenees and Boras in Sweden.
