Reunion island

In Non class by Antoine / 7 October 2019 / 0 Comments

C’est bien une photo prise en parapente!
Ile de la Réunion.
Décollage sous les nuages un peu à gauche de la photo au Colimaçon.
Plaf à 1200m et l’air porte bien avec le vent favorable.
Et non je n’ai pas fini à la mer 😉 posé sur la plage!

This is a picture taken in paragliding!
Reunion Island.
Take off under the clouds a little to the left of the pic (Colimacon).
Plaf at 1200m and the air was perfect with the favorable winds.
And no I have not finished at the sea 😉 Landed on the beach!

Black sea

In Non class by Antoine / 1 October 2019 / 0 Comments

The crossing of the Balkans is over on the beach of the Black Sea for our greatest pleasure!

La traversée des Balkans c’est terminé au bord de la mer Noire pour notre plus grand plaisir !

One month ago Bulgarian paragliders offered to come across the Balkans on a bivouac flight. I accepted on the sole condition of taking a Bulgarian novice of the bivouac flight!
We finally left with Tedi in the adventure! A women Bulgarian paragliding champion without any experience in the field of bivouac. Departure to the border of Serbia to reach the Black Sea. It took us a less than 2 weeks.
A new experience with many unexpected difficulties for all 2.
I will tell you some points in the next news.

Plaine

In Non class by Antoine / 26 September 2019 / 0 Comments

Les forêts coupent tellement les thermiques que nous devions aller régulièrement en plaine qui était beaucoup plus facile à voler ! Il faut juste retrouver un décollage pas trop loin en cas de poser…

The forests cut so much the thermal that we had to go regularly in plain which was much easier to fly! You just have to find a takeoff not too far in case of landing…

Marche

Une des plus grandes difficultés pour Tedi était de porter le sac, 15kg pour 10 jours d’autonomie. Mais le plaisir et le sourire est toujours là 😉
Nous avons limité au maximum ces moments difficiles !

Bears

Les bivouacs étaient agréables sauf quand les ours nous faisaient peur !
Extrait de discussion au bord du feu

The bivouacs were nice except when the bears scared us!

Forest

In Non class by Antoine / 12 September 2019 / 0 Comments

La plus grande difficulté pour traverser les Balkans en parapente reste les forêts à perte de vue ! Ce n’est pas toujours possible de trouver un atterrissage ou même un décollage de partout. Il vaut mieux essayer de rester haut quand c’est possible.
Les forêts empêchent le soleil de chauffer le sol et de créer des thermiques. La plaine sans arbre est souvent plus efficace pour voler avec des plafonds plus hauts.

The biggest difficulty in crossing the Balkans in paragliding is the forests with lost sight! It’s not always possible to find a landing or even a take-off anywhere. It’s better to try to stay hight when possible.
Forests prevent the sun from heating the ground and creating thermal. The treeless plain is often more effective for flying with higher bases clouds.

Bulgaria

In Non class by Antoine / 3 September 2019 / 0 Comments

Il y a un mois des parapentistes Bulgares m’ont proposé de venir traverser les Balkans en vol bivouac chez eux. J’ai accepté à la seule condition d’emmener un novice Bulgare du vol bivouac !
Nous sommes finalement partis avec Tedi dans l’aventure! Une championne de parapente Bulgare sans aucune expérience dans le domaine du bivouac. Départ à la frontiére de la Serbie pour rejoindre la mer Noire. Nous avons mis un peu moins de 2 semaines.
Une nouvelle expérience avec beaucoup de difficultés inattendu pour tous les 2.
Je vais vous relater quelques points dans les prochaines news.

Ecrins

Vol de 200km écourté par l’ombre d’un cumulonimbus mais c’est toujours aussi magique de traverser les Ecrins !
