High Hopes in the French Alps

Turkish Para-delights…

Well I didn’t get to fly the Omega 8 ballasted up, as the weather turned in so we got on with some chalet work, which always needs doing. A bit grey, grim and overcast today. Not much else to report.

Still having fun on the computer though, especially watching  the Paragliding World Cup, that has been going on in Denzili in Turkey. Don’t know why I didn’t mention it earlier, so wrapped up in it, it totally slipped my mind to let anyone else know. That, and doing the assuming thing, where I thought everyone would know about it! Anyway here’s the link, it’s been a thrilling competition and the amazing times have made it that much more exciting, making it anybodies game and touch at go for the leaders. The new tracking system set-up is excellent ‘when it works!’ it was fun watching the British Open using the same technology, down in St. André and makes it much more spectator friendly! Maybe the face of paragliding xc competitions may be changing?! There are some great videos up there to so if you want to know what’s been going on in the elite paragliding world there it is.
