Written by Kolla

Congrats to the participants – you guys and gals are now FAI official with this 21-way head-up record, set September 29, 2015, over Empuriabrava, Spain. Previous record was a 6-way, so this was a large improvement. We have a hunch that the Europeans are nowhere near done setting records.
