    I want to make the Hang Glider Calendar 2018 out of photos made by pilots all over the World. This will be my 12th Calendar. The history of the calendar can be found on my website.

    Making a calendar like this, is not possible if you, the hang glider pilots, don't send me one or multiple photos. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner on a floater or a hotshot on a topless glider, every photo has got its story and the diversity of the photos make a calendar better.

    You Hang Glider photos can be send to sander@svs-design.nl. Please include the pilot's and photographer's name as well as the location where the photo is taken. If the amount of data is really large, you could use services like wetransfer.com.

    To reward the ones sending photos for the Hang Glider calendar, the best 12 photos get a free calendar. Photos can be send until September 30th (only two weeks).

    The calendar itself will be available in the last week of October at hanggliderproducts.com

    DEALERS There are dealers in Germany, Japan and the Netherlands. If you would like to be a dealer for the Hang Glider Calendar in your country, please contact me.

    The wicked 2017 hurricane season is set to deliver its next two punishing blows from Hurricanes Maria and Jose. In both the Caribbean and along the Atlantic coast of the Northeast United States, conditions are set to deteriorate rapidly through Wednesday as these storms arrive.

    Wednesday it should hit St. Croix, which is the site of a floating hang gliding operation. You can watch here: http://www.gotostcroix.com/live/.
