Every year, the Flight of the Brave
occurs on Ponticupo Bay. Competitors try to fly across the entrance of they bay, from the north cliff to the south. The entrance of the bay is the shortest distance across the bay. Every year, a massive collection of boats and ships sail out from Rochia to the entrance. They form a massive, colorful, floating parade to watch the competitors hurl themselves off of the cliffs in flying machines. The healers from Rochia are always on hand to revive the participants who often find that water is not a soft landing.
