Opening ceremony was a great success. It started with a beautiful flight of 15 paragliders each of them carrying one of the 15 flags of the participating countries of the competition.
1st paraglider was a tandem with a disabled person in a buggy.
Then all pilots came ontp the stage, under their nation’s flag.
Speeches by officials, in particular the mayor of Doussard, supporting institutions, FFVL (french federation), to finish with a speech by Louise Jocelyn, official representative of the FAI, who declared the championships open!
A great ceremony, then aperitif and dinner for a great day.
Let the competition start!
