27/11/2011 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 27 November 2011 · 27 views

The forecast was for a slight front clearing to the south east at the beginning of the day. At 9:00am it was grey and wet but within a short time the cloud cover began to break up and by 10:00 driving towards Blackheath past the Olympic stadium the sun was dazzling!

A further bank of cloud with a few spots of rain cleared to an almost completely blue sky but with a serious leaf blowing breeze we were at the comfortable limit of the standard vented 1.5 with 4 wrap spars. If we all had the Mega Vented kites that would have been the sensible option but we stuck with the kites in hand and flew 'Plan A' a number of times.

'London Pete' turned up with his vented 1.5B and it checked out just fine especially once the bungees were adjusted. It is always interesting to switch to different line lengths and flying his 1.5B on 80 ft was a complete contrast to flying Maggie's Vented 2B on 120 ft. <grins>
