Canadian Record Caught on Camera

Canadian Record Caught on Camera

Forty seven women from all over Canada got together… in the sky of Farnham, in Montérégie on Friday, establishing a new Canadian record.

After diving into the air from three different planes that were flying at an altitude of 15,000 feet, they had to manage to grab onto each other’s hands in less than 50 seconds.

While falling, they all finally joined hands and stayed that way for 4 seconds, just enough time to take a photo to prove that it actually happened.  They beat the previous record established in 2006 when 36 women did the same.

It took three days and 11 jumps for these parachutists to reach their goal and to establish this new record approved by the Canadian Sport Parachuting Association.

“The women jumped five to six times per day.  On the third day, some of them were no longer motivated.

But they finally succeeded in beating the record”, said Martin Lemay, instructor for Parachutisme Nouvel Air, where the Canadian parachutists met.
