07/07/2013 Blackheath

So it was ‘Race for Life’ again on Blackheath today.  Maggie phoned ahead having parked up in Greenwich Park at about 10:00am.  I arrived a bit later having encountered a slow bus (108) in the Blackwell Tunnel.
 
In the spirit of the day we flew pink kites but with a twist.  The ‘Diamond Spars’ really are very good indeed.  We used the iQuad training sails two SUL sails (pink and purple) and one Standard sail (pink/gray) and put them through their paces against a 2 wrap set.
 
The weightless ‘glide away’ was just magic as well as the top of the window ‘slack line’ performance.
 
It is fair to say that high specification equipment may not really make things easier for a beginner but it certainly opens up the possibilities for the more experienced flier.  The Diamond spars are very light and when pressured, ‘snap’ back into line, very quickly.
