There was a light breeze, there was some sunshine, It was Zens rather than Xtra Vents, quite a contrast to the last few weekends.

The circus was still in place and we were early so heard the build-up to the 11:00am show and then flew with background music highlighted by the crash of the cymbals.    

The 'extra brake' setting for the high winds the last couple of weekends were just right for the low wind conditions today.  My kite floated off the top of the wind window on one occasion but the spar configuration/weight distribution had the kite gliding towards the wind 'direction' without losing much altitude.  I had to move quite quickly on the ground to take up the slack in the lines in order to re-connect to the kite.

Preparations are in hand for the Berck/Cervia/Weymouth events which follow after next weekend.  It's going to be quite an intense month.
