|We’ve just wrapped another hugely successful “trifecta” of back-to-back-to-back events and are continuing full speed ahead with our preparations for November. Over the past few months, we’ve received quite a bit of input from the global skydiving community regarding the 333-Way for which we are extremely grateful. This input included concerns about the high price of the event, considerations about USPA National Record requirements, as well as multiple recent suggestions for P3 to set a new FAI recognized Sequential World Record. Well, you’ve spoken and we’ve listened.
After extensive discussion within the P3 organization in collaboration with our colleagues from abroad, we’ve made the decision to change the format of this event to a “World Sequential Series”, whereby the goal of the event will be to set MULTIPLE new FAI sanctioned Sequential World Records (in other words, AS MANY NEW “OFFICIAL” WORLD SEQUENTIAL RECORDS AS WE CAN!!) with 200-250 of the most talented FS jumpers assembled. As we’ll be prioritizing quality over quantity, the exact size of the formation will be determined by the number of highly skilled “A-List” skydivers who apply. This change in event format has MANY advantages:
1. LESS EXPENSIVE - Reducing the size of the formation also reduces the cost as we will not need to ferry in as many aircraft from around the country. As a result, P3 can lower the event price significantly.
2. GREATER INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPATION – Pursuing an FAI World Record versus a USPA National Record -in addition to offering the event at a lower cost- will attract greater global participation and increase our pool of talent from around the world, allowing us to maintain the high standard this event requires.
3. An FAI WORLD RECORD carries a great deal more significance to a greater number of skydivers than a USPA National Record. And we’re not stopping at one!!
The FAI Sequential FS World Record is a very new addition to the catalog of FAI recognized World Records. There is currently no precedent (although there are a few guidelines) so we intend to start our warm-up dives with declared 100+ Way Sequential World Record attempts and build from there, finishing with a new 200+ Way Sequential World Record. This is by far one of the coolest events P3 will have ever done - and we’ve done some VERY cool events.
If you have already applied for the 333-Way, there is NO NEED TO REAPPLY for this event. If you are already confirmed for the 333-Way, you are confirmed for this “World Sequential Series” and new event details will be emailed to you shortly, including the revised price. If you are still awaiting a response to your 333-Way application, you will be contacted shortly regarding your qualification for this new sequential event.
We hope you are as excited as we are to take on this new WORLD RECORD challenge!
