Brett has been guiding pilots for a number of years with xTc Paragliding. He has been Meet Director for the GWO and Naviter Open from the outset, as well as for other competitions such as the Nordic, Belgian and British Champs. Brett also holds World Records for XC and has had considerable success at competing over the years. He will again be the Meet Director for this competition.
