posted: Feb 2nd, 2015 The 5th Dubai International Parachuting Championship 2014 and the Wind Games 2015 did not really have that much in common. The event in Dubai is an outdoor competition for the teams who could still not get enough of 4-way and other events at the end of the season, while the Wind Games indoor meet follows soon and very early in the new year.
