Hazy and grey today with a variable light SE breeze.  With the temperature hitting 20 degrees C it was almost T shirt weather.
It certainly was a treat to fly the 1.5 full sails with Diamond Rods again today.  The ‘two turn’ pull to the top of the window and the long, long downwind walk are just great.
We dropped in a...

I did get to Blackheath today but only to see if any of the team were still there.  It appeared that the thundery showers had sent them packing.

Vented kites with race rods worked for most of the session but we switched to full sails with race in order to do some ‘team’ flying...
