Colin Blagdon from England, UK, is the lucky winner of the Cross Country Subscribers’ Prize Draw, which was drawn at 1pm GMT Friday 12 January 2018. He won a paraglider of his choice from either AirDesign, Gin, Nova, Ozone Supair or Triple Seven.
Colin was over the moon to win the wing. “Yes, yes! Ha ha! Really?” he said when we rang him to give him the good news. “I’m absolutely thrilled!”
He said he was currently flying a Nova Triton 2 and also has a Nova Mentor 4 – and he might choose the new Nova Sector (EN C) as his new wing.
