16/06/2013 Blackheath

Leaving Hackney at 10:30am it was another grey day and it looked like rain was approaching.  Another summer day!

Full vented 1.5 kites were once again the best fit on Blackheath, mostly with race rods to coast through the lighter moments.  The swifts were out in numbers, but high up, not flying through the kite lines.

Talk today was of 'holding the handles'.  The consensus was finger tips only, no fist shaped grip, with the possibility of the small finger in opposition.  Light wind technique for sure!

I'm struggling with leader knot tying.  Does anyone know how to tie knots accurately at quarter inch intervals? <grins>
