22/09/2013 Blackheath

It was a light breeze on Blackheath today but the clouds did not burn off as forecast and at times there was a hint of drizzle.  The field is still not mown so we had to contend with snagged lines yet again.
 
Plenty of line set adjustments today in setting up a variety of spar configurations in the 1.5s and a couple of Robertshaw sails as well.
 
I flew the Diamond Rods again and later handed the 1.5 kite to Rowan who managed to fly in with the team in what were really marginal conditions for team flying.
 
Maggie supervised the assembly of her Cody kite and we flew it on the pink polyester sleeved Kevlar line that I have been carrying to kite festivals ‘just in case’ for very many years.  It was very well behaved but Ashley found that line handling can cause finger blisters rather quickly. <ouch>
 
I will be at Miami Beach for work at the beginning of December for 10 days so hope to fly some kites.  Jacob will be there as well.
