Complete contrast today to last Sunday with c20mph winds gusting upwards so Xtra Vented kites with 4 wrap frames. Still got to ache after a couple of hours flying though, but maybe it was the wind chill as well.

The distraction this weekend was a SLK flier setting up immediately upwind of us tying a large partially inflated sled with noisy line laundry to a lamp post. The kite proceeded to ditch either side of the wind window and then self launch. We re-located 100m to be outside the potential downwind breakaway zone... Enough said!

As the snag less handles are actually drilled front-to-back my plan for new leaders is taking shape. <grins> The only downside is the loose end beyond the knot. I don't think that it would be a snag risk. Now where did I put the line I had started tying?

A Dunstable excursion next Sunday and plans are afoot for the weekend of 12/13 January 2013 at Shipley Country Park near Nottingham.
