30/09/2012 Blackheath

The Canada Geese have certainly made an impact on our pitch at Blackheath this year. No sight of them in the air today, they were down by the pond, but the evidence was underfoot...

The forecast today was for 15mph plus and although it was not quite that at 10:45am we set up Xtra Vents with green race and enjoyed a relaxed fly as the variable breezes strengthened up to and, in the gusts, well above 15mph.

Long arm technique and treacle flying were very much in evidence. No gripping muscle fatigue either when moving on the ground to keep the occasionally underpowered sail on course. As long as a 'leading edge up' hover is 'just' possible the configuration is the correct one. <grins>

Great to see the plans for WSIKF 2013 100 flier Rev Event beginning to shape up. I hope that we can get a good showing for the YSP event 1st weekend in November. We only need 16 fliers...
