17/10/2010 Blackheath

Metcheck had been suggesting through the week that today would be a light wind occasion. It turned out to be a glorious October day, the only downside being that what breeze there was came from the North. Flying into the low sun without sunglasses gets to be tiring eventually.

We flew 3 Zens on Race Rods with 3 wrap centres and had the fairly extraordinary experience of flying 'over' the vertical point more than once. As all 3 fliers saw their lines go beyond vertical this was obviously a 'design feature' and no freak accident <grins>

At least when the kite had gone 'over the top' the flier did not have to look into the sun any more...

Getting familiar with the 'turning interval' of the Zen was the real achievement today.
