Dave Prentice, on an Ozone Proton GT, set a new world record for paragliding Open Distance yesterday, flying 386km from Zapata texas at the World Record Encampment. (Not official yet, but he was going for the record so shoudl have the necessary verification).
You can read more about it in the oz report 117
The hanggliding record was also beaten at 705 odd km by Mike Barber but may not have been exceeded by the 1% necessary for a new record.
