The schedule for tomorrow is another early start (similar wind forecast as for today, although slightly lower high winds). 8.00 first take off for Accuracy Landing - having completed the third round today, and 10 teams have jumped the 4th round, the plan is to complete the 4th round and whatever time and the weather allows us - the aircraft will be here. For formation skydiving tomorrow is the turn again of the 4-Way teams, both Open and Female with a 9.00 start. Canopy Formation 2-Way Sequential will continue in the morning from 9.00 as will Speed Skydiving, along with Artistic Events Freefly. Everyone else is released for the day.
Today we had 47 aircraft loads with a total of 604 jumps made, there were 8 rejumps - wind related - in the Accuracy Landing event.
Firstly belated wishes to Maxine Tate of Great Britain for yesterday
and Best Wishes to Aksana Famina, Belarus for today.
