Welcome to Parasummer boogie in Estonia!
This year Parasummer is held for the 18th time and again it will be in Pärnu, Estonia. During a week long boogie there are a lot of things going on – coaching (FF, FS, WS, CF), competitions and probably they’re going to try to jump some records. No less important are the social gatherings and parties held during the week and of course the famous beach landing. There are two aircraft serving us – Pilatus Porter (10 slots) and Cessna Caravan (15 slots) and for bigger formations, it would be possible to make those two aircraft fly together. The main CF load organizer will be Pasi Pirttikoski, and the rumor is that the goal is to practice flying 16-ways.
Parasummer 2017 July 14 – 22
Fun fact: Parasummer was born under the name of CFSCE’ 99 — Canopy Formation Skydiving Camp Estonia (changed to Parasummer in 2000). Despite the original idea, CF activity decreased after some years until 2014 when more CF jumpers started to gather at the boogie again. Last year we flew a 12-way kite over Pärnu bay, piloted by Pasi Pirttikoski. We would like to keep the numbers up and tradition going, so we welcome all crEUw-dogs to participate the Parasummer & the Cumulus Convention 2017 in Estonia!

We would like to know who is registering here so that we can organize and forecast a CF briefing. We provide the crEUw-registration form.
