Adrenaline junkies on Madeira: 16 – 20th May
Thanks to Peter for sending me a link, unusually to the sports pages of the Journal’s website, although the Mad’Air “show”, if you could call it that, does have its own rather slick website. The website has the video below of the 2017 event.
The JM reports that the 2019 Mad’Air is an event that promises to once again (this is the third occasion) delight the lovers of pure adrenaline and vertigo this week in several locations in Madeira, with the contribution of 20 of the best ‘base jumpers’ in the world.
The program is always subject to any change of hours or change of last minute location due to atmospheric reasons and, of course, the safety of the participants. Therefore, it is advisable to consult Facebook on the page Mad’Air 2019.
The AD Porto da Cruz organises the event in partnership with the Dutch company Pedro Verticalo Adventures and also with the technical collaboration of the well-known JP movie double from Kam.
For this Thursday a briefing Civic Centre of the Porto da Cruz is scheduled, starting at 7:00 pm.
