just as the contestants were about to start their "flights" some eery clouds rolled in - the boys and I were surprised to see some lighting and hear a bit of thunder. It did not slow the competition down in the least and eventually the sun came out and it was a warm day
there are 3 categories - Leonardo - what you see here - the contestant builds their own flying contraption and well most of them just "fall" into the water. Category 2 are the Condors - they use manufactured wings such as gliders. Category 3 are the Kingfishers - these are basically people dressed up in costumes that are raising money for charities.
one of the Condors about to take off - sadly there was very little wind on Sunday so flights appeared to be fairly short
I think this was the best part of the day - a crepe with belgian chocolate while sitting on the beach - really - nothing like it.
