Japon 2016 : Vivez un Championnat du Monde de Montgolfières avec l'équipe de Vendée

<p> Thomas, pilot ranked #3 in France has been selected for the World Hot Air Balloon Championships in Saga (Japan).</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Equipe_3-1471361213" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/343108/equipe_3-1471361213.PNG"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Anne, Quentin, Thomas, Benjamin and Sophie have progressed for the last 5 years (#2 at the 2012 junior world championship in Lithuania, French champion in 2014) and ready for this adventure.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Balloon is a team sport, so we need Thomas (pilot), Benjamin (navigator) and ground crew to prepare the balloon, chase the balloon, help on strategy, give wind direction...</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Article-1471358848" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/343097/article-1471358848.PNG"></p> <p> Newspaper from "La Nouvelle Republique" September 6,2014</p> <p>  </p> <p> Only 4 french teams are going to this championship. As never before we are motivate to compete against the 105 best world pilots.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This competition will have about 15 flights from 28th October to 7th November to find the best pilot on 30 different tasks to evaluate skills, precision and strategy.</p> <p>  </p> <p> A task example:</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Cible_ballon_2-1471516733" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/343359/cible_ballon_2-1471516733.PNG"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The goals is to be as close as possible from the target with the balloon. To "drive" the balloon, we go up or down to find the best wind as they have different speed and direction according to the altitide. When we are close to the target, we drop a 'marker' to show our passage.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Unfortunately we didn't participate at the world championship in 2012 (US) and 2014 (Brazil) due to lack of time and money. This year, we are doing our best to participate to this world championship and count on your support.</p> <p>  </p> <p> By helping us, we could fly the flag of France and share with you our awesome trip trough pictures and videos of the event (Facebook).</p> <p>  </p> <p> You can also connect on the official website : http://sagaballoonworld2016.jp/</p>
