09/12/2012 Blackheath

The heath is finally returning to pre-Olympic conditions. The last of the temporary fencing has gone.

A rising breeze today meant that we soon adopted Xtra vent sails with green race spars.

Three fliers indulged in lazy free form flying with some very neat 'treacle' flying moments.

Slow rotation in close proximity to other kites in relatively high wind speed requires confidence in co-fliers especially with multi wrapped lines.

I was very conscious of 'arms straight down, handles horizontal', even in the higher wind speed, being ready to react quickly to the occasional lull and keep the kite in the right place. <grins>
