Parachuters chase adrenaline high BASE jumping off Greek cliffs
Reuters - With the clear blue waters of the Ionian sea in front of them, adrenaline junkies gathered on the Greek Island of Zakynthos for four days of BASE jumping -- parachuting off steep cliffs.
Dozens of participants gathered on the cliffs above the sandy white Navagio Beach, performing more than 300 jumps between Aug. 20-24.
The starting point overlooks the bay, which has a shipwreck on the shore, at 200 meters (656 feet) high.
BASE jumping requires participants to parachute from a fixed structure, building, antenna, span, or earth, which make up the BASE acronym.
