Tandem PG World Out-and-Return Distance Record falls in Kenya

Wednesday 4 February, 2015

Hunter Marrian tandem world record Kenya

Hunter Marrian of Paraglide Kenya has flown a 211km out-and-return flight on a tandem from Nyaru in Kenya’s Rift Valley on 29 January 2015, which if ratified could break two FAI World records.

Hunter and his passenger Evan flew a Gradient BiGolden XC, and details of their flight can be scoured and pored over on XContest.org

Hunter wrote on Facebook:

It’s late January in the Kerio Valley, and it’s another WORLD RECORD. Breaking two Out and Return distance records in one flight. Free flight, and to a declared turn point in Tandem

Flying for 9 1/2 hours covering a total 211km, with my main man Evans. Co-pilot, wind spotter and legendary support man. Would not have been able to do it without him.

Kerio provides again…

The records claimed are Out-and-return distance – Multiplace and Free out-and-return distance – Multiplace.
