1 Day to go, Cheboksary, Russia

High five

Today started with cloud and rain but by 10.00 the skies had cleared, the sun came out, and all was set for the Tandem Jump of the Minister of Sport for the Chuvash Repuiblic, Sergey Milnikov and his tandem master, Jiri Blaska, the FAI Controller.  The Minister really enjoyed the experience and thanked everyone involved.  Given the support for this competition shown by his Ministry it is nice to be able to share our enthusiasm for the sport in such a real way.

Today we continue with official practice jumps from the two Turbolets and two Antonovs.

Antinov Turbolet
Antonov = Style Turbolet = accuracy

 

 By mid-day the rain was back and we have grey cloud cover.    After lunch the sun was out again and we continued with official practice jumps for the Accuracy and Style competitors.
