28-way Competition

Brian Knight 28wayWelcome to the 28-way sequential information page. Since 2005, we at Skydive Hibaldstow have been hosting the UK's largest formation skydiving sequential competition. On average 4 to 5 teams of 28 enthusiastic jumpers come to the dropzone every summer for a friendly but competitive bigway competition.

The 2013 dates are booked in for the 29th and 30th June.

Competition Format
The annual 28-way sequential competition follows a very similar format to that of 4-way or 8-way. All formations must be completed for a point to be scored. There are 6 rounds and a pool of dives which are randomly chosen from a hat.

The pool of 28way formations is split in easy, medium and hard classes. So the competition starts with easier warm-up dives and works forward to formations called Unimpossible!

Take Part

The team captains for 2013 are Dave West with team Hibnosis, Dave Lewis with Herding Cats and 2 other teams captained by Billy Payne / Brian Cumming and Gordon Hodkinson / Guy Wright. These teams are usually invitational, however there are often late competitors who have to drop out, so you can already register your interest by sending us an email and we will be happy to forward your details on.
