A bright sunny morning looked like an opportunity to get some time on the Zens but soon after setting up c10:45am the breeze picked up and we switched to the standard 1.5s. It was not long before these were feeling overpowered and so we were back on the full vented 1.5s with Race rods.

Following on from last weekend we tried the parallel figure eights with wing tip turns and a stop on the diagonal with five kites diced. That is definitely a move for a confident grid one day. Finding the form of words to explain the move on the fly is a bit of an issue... Linear arcs switching from 2 and 3 to 3 and 2 was a bit of a challenge descriptively.

Somewhere along the line today we flew some 360 degree pendulums in fairly tight order which is, in my view, a good indication of flier co-ordination.
