Claire Garnesson

france

She is a little bit crazy, she likes to stay in bed in the morning (doesn't apply to flyable days) and she loves chocolate cakes! Paragliding? She randomly started 5 years ago as a university sport. She could have chosen ping-pong but it didn’t sound as exciting. Back home after her first course she watched acro videos “that’s what I want to!” so of course she’s now flying XC. She travelled a lot, spent a year in New Zealand where she enjoyed amazing landscapes and great hike&fly with a crazy bunch of happy pilots.  She flew several 100+ km XC in the French Southern Alps. And she’s working on bigger ones (just waiting for the sun to be back). Be careful she can get really moody if she sinks out (she bites)! Otherwise she is very enthusiastic and cheerful! She might be planning a bivvy-fly adventure through the alps this summer and a long trip to Chile… [to be continued]
