Julian Robinson won the first round of the 2017 British Paragliding Championships 2017.

The competition was held over the week of 22-28 July and based at Tewkesbury in the UK. The British weather was not kind, and only one valid task was managed. The scores, with only one task, were very close, a single point separating first, second and third places.

The British Champion will be crowned following the second round, which will take place at Saint-Andre-les-Alpes in France, starting on 2 September.
