27/10/2013 Blackheath

With a little assistance from the clock change we were on the Heath at about 10:00am today.
 
As the wind was c20 mph I helped Rowan set up his new lines and handles (thanks Lolly) and made sure sufficient brake was set before he attempted to fly the Xtra Vent sail with 4 wrap.  That was the set-up for the rest of us as well, or at least most of us.
 
We flew six for the first time since the end of the event season.  Ashley called and Rowan flew in confidently given the fairly extreme conditions.  We stacked the kites in the air and on the ground but eventually the level and persistence of the gusts suggested that it was time to quit while we were ahead.
 
Other kiters(?) today were seen body surfing on the grass and demonstrating complete lack of control. :-(
