New World Records in Brazil!

I was very happy to hear that my friends Glauco Pinto and Andre Wolf both flew a new declared to goal distance world record after a foot launch in Tacima. They´ve beaten Jonny Durands record of 557km by about 50km, which is huge!!! Some paragliders were on course as well, guess they also might have beaten some records. For the hang gliders, Andre and Glauco set the record up to 607km declared goal from a mountain take off!
I talked to the guys in the evening and congratulated them on their big flight. They were staying in the next village over night, celebrating, as the retrieve in Brazil can take a while longer than on a German Autobahn ;) What a great adventure!
