Skydive Nagambie event drew more than 100 entrants from throughout Australia and New Zealand.LOUISE CROSS November 30, 2012 4:37am
Now in its sixth year, the 2012 Full Moon Skydiving Festival at Skydive Nagambie proved just as popular as in previous years.
More than 100 skydivers recently descended upon Nagambie for four days from all over Australia and New Zealand, with some participants travelling from as far as Norway especially for the event.
International coaches from Germany, Great Britain and the United States joined forces with champion Australian coaches to lead and instruct in different aspects of the sport. From the new and emerging discipline of Wingsuiting which continues to gain in popularity, to free flying and formation skydiving, skydivers and spectators were not left wanting.
To cater for the required extra lift capacity, an additional identical aircraft was brought down from Sydney. Ideal weather conditions for the duration of the festival ensured skydivers were able to participate in as many skydives as they wished — with some doing as many as 12-15 per day which meant about 2000 skydives were completed over the event.
Skydive Nagambie would like to thank the local support they received for the event, especially the continuing sponsorship Nagambie Lakes Entertainment Centre provides each year.
