So, the 39th Annual Hang Gliding Spectacular got off the ground today (pun intended). Day 1 was a success. Perfect weather, acceptable winds, and hang gliding talent aplenty. As of the start of the competition, we had 59 participants. We should have gotten a standings list from Bruce Weaver, but we didn’t; 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. For more info and a complete schedule of events, visit www.hangglidingspectacular.com.
