On the 7th of May 1979 Gerry Breen set a new distance record for powered hang gliders of 202 miles (Wales to Norwich). He also made a flight to Paris, sponsored by British Airways. This glider, registered G-BGNL, is held by the museum and in celebration of Gerry's achievements we hope to make a much longer flight with the same glider from LANDS END, England to Cabo Sao Vicente (THE END OF THE WORLD) in Portugal. It was on this cape that Henry the Navigator set up a school of navigation to teach the great explorers and it was regarded as the stepping off point in the era of Portugese discoveries. This will involve powering the glider with a small motor, as Gerry did on his record breaking flights.
