Michael Sigel 13. February 2020 XC Brazil 2019
Finally the flight from Yael was ratified by the FAI. From now on she is a double record holder with her incredible flight of the 12.10.2019. On that day she was flying with a group of Swiss pilots and her boyfriend Clement. Take off was at 7:00 in Caico in Brazil and ended almost 11 hours later after sunset. With that flight she is the first women ever to cross 500km with a paraglider! The records are:
Free distance using up to 3 turn points: 552.4 km
Straight distance: 531,7 km

Congratulations Yael!!
