10/02/2013 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 10 February 2013 · 217 views

The forecast was fairly dire so it was with a certain level of optimism that we drove to Blackheath this morning in light rain.  The gondolas were evident in the rear view mirror approaching the Rising Sun roundabout so it was not 'that' windy.
 
Standard vented 1.5s with race/ultra light(3 wrap) dealt with the occasional lulls in the S/SE breeze.  Four fliers took the 'lazy' option of no call free flying often in close proximity and with only one entanglement in over an hours continuous flying time.  The variation of speed seems to produce the most interesting fragments of potential organised team moves with expansion and contraction of the group of kites providing an underlying rhythm.
 
The light rain as we set up had gradually increased and showed signs of turning to sleet so we wrapped up soon after midday realising that it was 'now' very wet!
 
Berck and Cervia seem a long way away at the moment but I hope that we will be able to set up a Super 16(12) event for 16th-17th March somewhere in England.
