After a successful BREL weekend late last year, hindered by weather,  we hustled up the immense amount of enthusiasm in South Australia currently and organised another 3 day BREL event. Students studied up their B-Rel guides, greased up the wheels of the creepers and arrived for the event very well prepared.

Friday morning started with a group briefing, outlining the best tips and tricks for successful BRELs

We also covered

- exits

- diving to formations

- approaching formations

- flying on level

- taking and releasing docks

- safe break-off

- jump run and tracking

 

Friday delivered winds of an annoying 13-17 knots keeing some of the candidates grounded. 

We were blessed with pristine weather for the remainder of the weekend, with hardly a breath of wind and crystal clear blue skies for the majority of the three days.

 

With a team of experienced instructors and coaches, the candidates were primed for a day of epic jumping.
