Skydive Algarve – days 2 and 3: the theme is high winds


We had six good three-way formations yesterday, including a superb “dive to pin”. Mark exited first, Jake a half-second after him, followed by me a moment later. It’s remarkable how much space the first jumper gains as he accelerates away: maybe two or three hundred feet in that half-second. We dived down, meeting after about 20 seconds for a high-speed spin until around 5000 feet. Great fun.

The high altitude jump was cancelled for strong winds at the top — who knows where we would land? — and today, the wind on the ground is too severe. We understand tomorrow will be the same, so that’s probably it: a 12-jump break.

The internet connection here is awful, so we’ll have a couple of days improving our packing.
