30/06/2013 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 30 June 2013 · 257 views

The forecast was for a proper summer’s day and that indeed was how it was today.  Arrived on Blackheath at 10:00am and initially the breeze felt fairly light but I set up the full vented with green race rods.  Over the next 2 hours the breeze gradually increased and by the time we wrapped, heavier spars, or the Xtra Vented sail, would have been more comfortable.
 
Needless to say the new Diamond rods stayed in the bag.  The current forecast for next Sunday looks promisingly light but such forecasts tend to morph during the week.
 
Rowan flew again today on 120ft lines.  Initially the 20th Anniversary sail with 3 wrap and then the vented sail from the iQuad set with 4 wrap spars.  He avoided heavy impact with the ground and only very occasionally had issues with tip wraps or flat down landings.  Not ever having flown a 2-line kite he has no problem with adapting hand positions for left or right facing traverses.
