Several competitors of parascending gathered at the airport of Saint-Yan to take advantage of installations and of advice of specialists of the Center School of Parascending of Saint-Yan. Others came to discover the activity or to perfect their technique of flight.

For the aficionados of the landing precision, they were able to take advantage of a new statutory foam target equipped with a quite new 2 cm tile.

The weather report was not there but if the paras jumped between two showers the first day, the next day the wind joined in and all were not able to fly even by changing place. As for the third day, the sun was present but the wind was too strong. It is the big problem of this sporting kind: we are at the mercy of elements!
