2017 CF Web Challenge - About the Judges

Bernard copy



Bernard Nicolas


I joined the world of skydiving nearly 33 years ago.   First as a simple skydiver, then as a competitor and now more than 20 years as a national judge and FAI judge, in multi disciplines.

I had to stop jumping. I then decided to lend my support to the development of our sport. To do this I spent several qualifications of FAI judge. I attended several World Cups, World Championships, Mondial of skydiving as a judge or event judge and chief judge. Specialising in Canopy Formation, I participated in the first edition of the CF Web Challenge and I'm very involved in the renewal of this project again. 

I hope that the discipline of canopy formation can continue its development and am very happy to be able to judge 8-Way Sequential.

I wish good luck to the CF Web Challenge.

I started to judge in 1989.

My first rating was FS. In 1999 I received my FAI IPC Judge rating in CF. I’ve served as a Principal Judge, Event Judge and Chief Judge.

I enjoy judging, the excitement at competitions and the people and friendships.

It is fantastic to follow developments in our sports, the skilled participants and their amazing achievements.

I began skydiving in 1987. I enjoy all aspects of skydiving and find fascination in all disciplines as each one is so unique. My enjoyment of the sport led me to judging and I began my judging career in 1995 as a provincial and national judge in my home country of Canada and attended my first international event as an FAI Judge in 1999 in Corowa, Australia. 

Since then, I have attended numerous World Cups and World Championships in the capacity of either a Panel Judge, Event Judge, or Chief Judge. I am FAI rated in all disciplines except for AE.

I am looking forward to this Web Challenge as I believe the non-traditional format will encourage more CF jumpers to participate. I am also hoping that CF jumpers who have never experienced 8-way speed will opt to try it and enjoy the challenge of it.

I started jumping 20 years ago and initially focussed on Big-Way Formation Skydiving.  In 2007 I started to learn CF and started competing in 2-way in 2008.  While living away from a CF dropzone, I started to train as a judge keeping up with the CF competitive scene.  I have British and American National judge ratings, am an FAI judge in Canopy Formation and still compete in 2-way CF in the UK. 

Although I am unlikely to compete as GB1 or GB2 at a World Championship for a long time, I am pleased to have been able to judge at the Mondial last year and will be judging at the World Cup in Germany this year as well as the Web Challenge throughout the summer. 

The Web Challenge is exciting for competitors at my level, providing the opportunity to have performances judged by a panel of FAI judges alongside the National Champions.

I started jumping in 1982 and still do it. In 1985 I did my first but not last CReW jump. 1990 I visited the WPC in CReW at Chang Mai Thailand. 1997 I was in the swedish CReW team C4 and won the Finish nationals in rotation. In 1998 I did a training judge course in Eloy, USA and left as a FAI judge in CF ( the new name for CReW ) and have been to every WPC, WC and Mondial in CF since then. I’m also a proud member of the World Record CF team since 2003.

Looking forward to the CF Web Challenge again and wish all the teams good luck and clear air.

I started judging CF at the Russian Nationals back in 2003, and got my first FAI judging rating in CF in 2006 during the Mondial in Stupino, Russia, from Barry McAuley. Later on I also received FAI judges ratings in FS and CP, but CF as the true love “never fades”.

I’ve been judging CF at numerous National and 1st category events as a panel judge and event judge, and am thrilled and honoured to be the CF Chief Judge at the World Cup in Saarlois in August this year.

I was a judge at the first Web Challenge and I am happy to have been selected for the re-launched Web Challenge this year. I believe it to be a wonderful opportunity for the teams and judges to develop our sport further, give young teams a spirit of a real first-class competition and increase a number of CF events during the year.

"The Chair of the FS committee received notification of intent from France and Canada and the organisers have also received informal indications from Czech Republic and Singapore that they plan to send teams for the 4-Way IFS Junior event. This means that currently we have four teams (NACs) wishing to compete in the junior competition.
