Daniel Cunneen – Completed AFF

The skydiving week was off to a wet start on Monday 22nd March, and Tuesday and Wednesday. There was no jumping.

Thursday was better weather, no more rain but a touch windy. Sara’s Canopy Handling group got three jumps done.  Mikel Acuna Lumberas did one jump towards his B-Licence.

Friday was fantastic weather. Sara’s Canopy Handling course continued. Fun jumpers started arriving and we ended up doing 9 Caravan loads – two of them night loads! On ya Oli!

Tony van der Linde did Stage 4,  Ari Kanazawa did Stages 5, 6 & 7 of his AFF Course, and Daniel Cunneen did Stages 8 & 9 – completing his AFF Course.

(2021 – to be confirmed…)

Had an absolute great time learning this amazing sport... I am absolutely hooked. My partner also did 2 tandem jumps, considering that she doesn't like flying or heights and yet due to the nature of Ramblers and their instructors and staff, she is definitely hooked as well. Absolutely recommend Ramblers either for an experience of a life time or to complete a full course. You will not regret it.
