Cathy’s SkyDive – raising funds for the Garrison Girls.
Wow what an amazing day.
So I jumped from 15,000ft above ground, over 16,000ft above sea level and by heck, it’s a long way down. Freefall for about a minute at (I’m told) 140mph – if you look closely at the pictures you’ll see the skin being dragged up my cheeks – very glam! We had a lot of waiting around for the weather to clear but it was worth it. 7 hours of waiting for 7 minutes back to earth from 3 miles high. For me the best bit was actually jumping out of the plane and going upside down – and steering the parachute was pretty cool too.
The instructors at skydive buzz were great and really knew their stuff, a proper professional outfit as they say. If you have ever wondered about doing a skydive I would say go for it. I’m so glad I did. And if you can raise some money for Garrison Girls while you are at it, then what’s stopping you?
