A crowning end to the season
On yesterday’s flight I managed to fly 27 Infinity Tumblings, something that has never been achieved by a woman before. I didn’t correct one of the last rotations cleanly enough so the wing went off axis. I was a bit unsure about this and decided to stop the manoeuvre. The men’s record is 281 rotations, set in 2009 by Spain’s Horacio Llorens from a great height in the Himalayas. In the same year Celine Barman from Switzerland flew Infinity Tumblings as the first and therefore only woman at the time, and has since managed up to 10 rotations.
I just don’t have the words to summarise or be able to describe my past season. I feel so much happiness in being able to live my passion and thereby to have experienced much joy and success. I am well aware of the giant privilege this represents, and the sense of gratitude I feel for this situation and to my partners is limitless.
My flying season is now over for the year. A touch of acro fatigue has crept in during these cold autumn days and I am now quite looking forward to returning on Monday to my winter office job at my glider sponsor ADVANCE. There I help the Support Team with advice to ADVANCE pilots worldwide. I also support the Marketing Team by writing the manuals for our paragliders and harnesses.
