Niestety nie Chiny! - Cancellation of the World Hovercraft Championships in China.
You may recall that at the last WHF Board meeting in the UK in 2016 the Board accepted a bid from the Chinese Taiyuan Hovercraft Association (CTHA) to host our World Championships in 2018. As China is new to WHF it is necessary that the CTHA organize a major trial race meeting on the proposed site one year prior to a full World Championship. This is to demonstrate to the WHF that they are competent in all respects to organize a major event and that a full World Championship may take place.
Despite everyone’s best endeavours there was not sufficient evidence to demonstrate that a trial race meeting was possible this year so the decision was taken to withdraw our permission for the CTHA to host our World Championships in 2018.
The Chairman and Vice Chairman of the CTHA offer everyone their unreserved apologies for not being able to honour their commitment to host our World Championships but promise to continue to build experience so that they may re-bid again in the future. In return, the WHF have offered all the assistance we can give to assist them in their aims.
