May 28, 2018 Bob Kuczewski broke the site record at Dockweiler Beach CA by making over 100 flights in a single day and carrying his glider (Falcon 195) a total of 2500+ feet up the soft sandy 25 foot ridge. The previous record of 66 flights was held by Windsports instructor Bob Bendetson. Joe Faust had recently come close to that record with 60 flights in a day.

I've just heard from Frank Colver that the record of 102 flights set earlier this year has just been broken by the new Windsports owners.

Congratulations. Now we need separate divisions for amateur and professional. :)

In all seriousness, thanks to Andy and Josh for their efforts at promoting hang gliding at Dockweiler!!
