SKYDIVE Jersey celebrated its tenth anniversary recently by holding a skydive boogie.

In skydiving terms, a boogie is when a large group of skydivers gather for fun rather than to compete.

Although the weather prevented a full week of jumping as had originally been planned, the group managed to fit 70 fun jumps for experienced skydivers and ten charity tandem jumps into the week.

As well as the local divers, a number of jumpers came over France and the UK for the anniversary week, with the daily events based at the Aero Club and the divers then landing on the beach at the Gunsite.

Nigel O’Brien from Skydive Jersey said: ‘It was a pleasure to see some of the original jumpers from a decade ago and to welcome some newly qualified skydivers into the fold. Let’s hope we’re still burning up the sky in another ten years from now.’
