08/01/2012 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 08 January 2012 · 72 views

Another grey day but lighter breezes meant standard 1.5 sails with Race rods for the first time in a long time.

Four fliers settled into some neat 'free form' flying with some good slow and close flying. Somehow linear flying as in 'follow the leader' seems so 'yesterday' after 'free form' but we did fall-in for some 'V' infinities and then some parallel switched 'two to four' infinities before trying some parallel figure eights. I have in mind the possibility of interlacing all of these moves with another four kites in opposition so it is as well to get familiar with the basic moves, simple as they may seem in isolation. Remember the 'Sprockets'!

The team agenda for 2012 is shaping up quite quickly which is great. However it looks as though access to Blackheath may be somewhat restricted during the Olympic period so we may have to find an alternative site for the duration.
