SOS World Record 100-Way 2023

In 2022, we took on the biggest SOS challenge we thought possible. We made one amazing jump after another. We completed the first actual 110-way attempt except for one grip being dropped just before the last was picked up! We did four beautiful jumps with one person out. A different person each time and all very skilled, experienced flyers. One formation after another flew beautifully. We were doing some amazing skydiving! On the last jump the only person out passed out.

As the clock ticked down we only had a few jumps left. It is the Captains' duty to consider going smaller if that would still give us a record. We did our duty and discussed it. Who would we sit down? Do we just cut 10, 20 or 30 people because a smaller jump has a better chance of succeeding? Not a chance, we're too close and everyone is skydiving great. We're going for it. (And there would have been a damn mutiny if we didn't!)

It was the epitome of "Living Life in a Big Way." Reaching as high as we could. Pushing ourselves and each other to be the best we could be. Going for it because that is what life is about. And doing it together, with all our family. And in 2023, we're doing it again... who's in?
