The 2019 Australian and New Zealand National Skydiving Championships is underway at Moruya Airport.
Eurobodalla Shire mayor Liz Innes opened the event with a tandem skydive with Paul Smith, then quickly gave way to the professionals.
Day one of the competition was dominated by the team events, in particular, the formation events.
As of Tuesday morning, team K4 was leading the Canopy Formation 4-Way Sequential Open event with a four-jump score of 23.
Wild Cards had the upper hand in the Formation Skydiving 4-Way AA event with a three-jump score of 20. Red Belly Defence was second with 18, and VAWNT was third with 16.
Kinetix was leading the Formation Skydiving 4-Way AAA division with 44 points, ahead of Caliente (39) and Whitefish (33).
Focus leads the way in the Vertical Formation Skydiving Open division with 38 points, and Block Party leads the VFS 4-Way Advanced division with 30.
A number of new world records are expected to be set during competition due to recent changes to the Speed Skydiving event rules.
The 2019 AUS/NZ National Championships is the first event under the new laws, meaning the winners of each speed category will automatically become world-record holders.
The National Skydiving Championships will continue until Monday, March 18.
