This is a limited parachuting event for RCPT-USA team members who have jumped with RCPT-USA before or do not need the Extended Airborne Refresher or Basic Parachuting Course. Keep your currency, grab some grub and get wet at RCPT-USA's first annual All American Water Jump and Accuracy Competition.
Space is limited to 20 Jumpers.
Participation in both events is required. Water Jumpers must complete a dry land jump the weekend prior to the water jump and complete wet silk training per RCPT-USA's ASOP
The water jump is into the St John's River. Jumpers must be preregistered to secure a slot. Cost is $250. Fee includes team MC1 series main and reserve parachutes which will need to be washed and dried within 24 hours prior to repacking or risk being unservicable. All jumpers will be required to wear a USCG approved personal flotation device. Jumpers are responsible to bring their own PFD. ALL jumpers for the deliberate water jump must have current water jump training. RCPT-USA will run the wet canopy classes Saturday for jumpers needing the training. No combat equipment. No helmets. Jumpers must wear shoes and clothes that are suitable for water activities (swim trunks or shorts), that won't come off, or present a hazard in the aircraft or in the air - so no swim fins or flip flops. Recommended jumpers not wear boots.
Jump Aircraft is the C182
