Skydive 

NEW FOR 2020!

Are you brave enough to take on the ultimate challenge for LJWB?

You will jump from a height of 10,000ft, free falling for 25 seconds and reaching speeds of up to 120mph! As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll take the plunge whilst over the North Sea, with a birds eye view of the breath-taking scenery of the Yorkshire Coast.

A tandem skydive allows you to enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled freefall harnessed to the front of a BPA-qualified instructor and you simply need a short 20 minute briefing beforehand as it is the instructor who opens and lands the parachute. If the visibility is good you can follow the coastline from Whitby, right down to the Humber Bridge and beyond.

The skydive will take place at:

East Leys Farm, Grindale,

Bridlington, East Yorkshire, YO16 4YB.

It will be the most exhilarating experience of your life!

Sunday 19 July 2020

Registration Fee – £49

Additional Minimum Sponsorship – £400

Please note minimum age is 16 (under 18s require parental consent on the day) and maximum weight to jump is 15 stone.
