Euroglide 2014

23 June until 5 July


64 teams started this edition, an all-time record! We divided the teams in 4 classes and had slightly different routes for different classes, so as to avoid overcrowding airfields on the first days of competition. The route was flown clockwise, first into Germany, to the Southeast. We started with very good weather conditions and already on day 2, Tuesday, the first teams were close to the third turning point Poitiers in the Southwest of France. About 20 teams managed to finish in Malden at the end of day 4, Thursday. This was also an all-time record! Some 15 teams finished on Friday and Saturday, but then, for the remaining teams (some 30 in total), a rainy weekend followed. They were stuck in France, Belgium or Germany and had little other options than drinking beer and watching Worldcup Football. From Monday on, and especially on Tuesday, the weather was good and most remaining teams finished on Tuesday in Malden: party time! This was quite a remarkable edition: an all-time record of competition teams, good gliding conditions in the first week, a rainy middle weekend (with lots of beers and football on television) and good atmospheres.

In previous Euroglide editions, all teams were released on the same route at the same time. With the current number of participants, this concept would result in too many teams visiting the same airfields along the route at once (without invitation or notice!).

Therefore, two very similar routes have been specified, each for one pair of classes. One route has a detour after the common route, the other route has a detour before the common route. This way we hope the prevent overcrowded airfields.

For the Selflaunchers and the Low Turbos: Starting from Eindhoven (EHEH) to Stillberghof in Germany. There the common route is joined, heading to the South West through Switzerland to Roanne (LFLO) and Poitiers (LFBI) in France. The detour after the common route is flown by rounding Soest instead of Dahlemer Binz. For all classes, the finish is in Malden, the Netherlands.

The Gliders start at Malden and the High Turbos at Venlo. The route of these two classes begins with a detour. First to the East to Ithwiesen in Germany, followed by a south eastern leg to Amberg. Then the common route through Switzerland and France is flown. This time Dahlemer Binz (EDKV) in Germany is the final turnpoint before finishing on Malden.

The total distances of these routes ranges from 2342 to 2350 km. There is also an anti-clockwise route specified. It has the same turnpoints, but the detours are switched. Details about these routes and also about the small and large route variants (for excellent or extremely bad weather) can be found on the rules page.

Mobile website operational

The Euroglide mobile website is operational. This light website is designed for use with a smart phone. It is not an app, so just use the browser of your smartphone or laptop.

The site allows you to report your position (mandatory each evening), view the reported positions of other teams, view notifications from the Euroglide contest officials, add shouts and view the shouts of other teams.

Teams are asked to familiarise themselves with the site. Just play with it, login with your team login id and add your position or a shout. Until the first day of competition, the results will be displayed on Day 0 - Sandbox. Each day at midnight, the sandbox page is cleared automatically.

Real time reports

We have reserved 56! KNVvL-Trackers and are planning the distribution of these to the participating teams. Also, some participants carry a SPOT or share their position via the transponder (ADS-B). Therefore these teams can be tracked in real time. The real time position data will be published at Further details will be shared when available.
