The current Guinness World Record for the most tandem skydives within 24 hours is 281 and is also held by Skydive UK. “We know we can do more. We will prove this by breaking our own record, aiming for 333” said Jason Farrant, managing director of Skydive UK. Many other skydiving centres across the whole world have tried to beat Skydive UK, but they must find it difficult as the bar has been set very high. “15000 feet is the highest skydive you can do without the oxygen supply. Many other places settle for much less height, which we don’t think is the ultimate experience.”
“In 2015 we would like to raise even more money for charity. We are aiming to keep this event exclusively for charities” said Linda Bulpin, charity coordinator at Skydive UK. Last year over £46 000 was raised for this single event. Over 30 charities have already signed up to be part of the record in 2015. Among them is Exeter based Dream-A-Way which provides holidays and outings for people with disabilities across Devon & Cornwall.
Dream-A-Way Chairman Jeff Merrett said “ We are really looking forward to this fantastic event, raising lots of money and getting into the record book too.”
