And unfortunate sequence of pool camera busts for Fireflies put them behind from the start of the meet, givign them a real battle to find their place. The battle rolled all the way through to a jump off where Shadow and Fireflies drew again! Shadow just pippedd them to the post for gold!

After a disastrous funnel in round 4, local team Baccus were forced into a jump off for silver and unfortunately funnelled again, leaving them third to Venom.

The heavily contended AA category was fraught with a tight, emotional battle for the top slots. 

Not firing off well at the start, Vantage worked hard to recover their tough first rounds, and though energetic the team could not quite take back their slow start. Vantage took Bronze. 

The battle for the top slots went right to the last round and concluded with one point between Pjama Pumas and home team SaltyJacks. No rest for the wiked though as most of the top team jetted out to a boogie straight after the event!

A wild weekend of weltering weather. 

We temperatures hitting almost 30 degrees, the DZ was HOT. 

The big show this weekend was Foundry Intermediates, and it was quite a meet. 

Requiring just that little more experience, the meet tends to have some great skydives and some great shapes. 




Weekend 27-28th May

A fantastic weekend for everyone at the DZ. 

The big event this weekend was the head up event with Matty and Ally and what a great weekend it was.


An awesome turnout for the Head Up event and even the weather played ball. This allowed the Freefly crew enough jumps for some real good progression from everybody involved and they were even able to create a new UK Head Up record of 14.
