In contrast to last Sunday, today was at the other end of the spectrum in terms of wind speed with periods of absolute calm.

So it was Zens and CR sails. I was flying the CR with 3 wrap most of the time but finally changed to Race Rods which allowed the kite to float on the rising air when the directional flow died away. Sometimes a little extra weight allows for the sail to be thrown around but somehow it did not feel like that today.

It was T-shirt temperatures and as is often the case at this time of year all our kit became covered in spider's silk. We could occasionally see the silk attached to the flying lines as we flew, for most of the time, directly into the sun.

Next weekend I will be working at Frieze Art Fair in Regents Park so will miss out on Kite Flying. Occasionally the 'day-job' gets in the way! <grins>

EDIT Happily one of my colleagues offered to switch days so I will be able to fly on Sunday...
