So, the 39th Annual Hang Gliding Spectacular got off the ground today, May 20, 2011. Day 1 was a success! Perfect weather, acceptable winds, and hang gliding talent aplenty. As of the start of the competition, we have 59 participants. We have not gotten a standings list from Bruce Weaver yet, but we'll make sure to post them tomorrow.
In the meantime, here's some footage from day 1 of the dune competition.
Remember, day 2's events kick off at 10:00 tomorrow on the dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park. Read our update on day 2 here.
