Formation Skills Camp
A Canopy Formation Skills Camp was
held at the Johannesburg Skydiving Club
on 31 May, at which Sharky Annandale
and Nico Cilliers did several CF jumps
with CF novices to introduce them to
this exciting discipline.
Helge Harms and Tilman Harms have been
doing regular CF jumps at JSC and a
number of members expressed an interest
in learning about the discipline. Organisation
for this camp started in February this
year but, unfortunately, the first planned
weekend in March was rained out.
Due to Nationals training and other
scheduling conflicts, the next available
date was 31 May. CF novices, Gavin Lewis-Walker,
Christo Pieterse and Johan Coetzer were
coached on the day. They all jumped,
they all lived and they all loved it.
We are planning to do some more jumps
with them shortly, and to have them
on Cat III as soon as possible.
A highlight of the day was a 3-way
drag-plane with Sharky, Helge (dragging)
and Tilman. Stacks of fun was had by
