208 km on a Vibe!
05 Oct 2004
He flew for 5h 20mins with an average speed of 40 km/h, although at times he had 85km/h ground speed on his GPS! As you can imagine it was quiet windy!!
Having only been paragliding for three years, Jean Yves was very happy to achieve this big flight:
"after a while and a lots of kms I was lost, over unknown flatlands, I start to be tired, and then I recognised les gorges du Tarn close to Millau, I flew with a gaggle of big Vultures! This made me feel good again and keep going! when I landed I had a big smile on my face, the owner of the field was the Mayor of the town, he couldn't beleve it! We drunk the apperro and then he gave me a 3 hours lift to the highway where I hitch hick back home! For me it was almost frustrating af easyness! Yes,That was a very good day!"
Congratulations to Jean Yves who broke the site record and the Auvergne record with a DHV 1-2!
