Now in its third instalment, the Dubai International Parachuting Championship and Gulf Cup is creating a bigger buzz than ever, with some 800 participants signed up to launch themselves out of planes over the Arabian Gulf as part of the championship competition. There are few places on Earth where professional divers can compete over such an impressive, instantly recognisable landscape, and the photographs – some from the last two competitions can be seen on these pages – really speak for themselves. Participants will be flying in from 43 countries around the world to compete for cash prizes, top spots in the championship and the Gulf Cup, though as the name suggests, the latter contest is only open to competitors from the Gulf region. Competitors will battle it out in canopy piloting, four-way formation skydiving (with women’s, men’s and mixed teams), four-way canopy formation and accuracy contests (individual and team).
