12/01/2014 Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 12 January 2014 · 170 views

It was a bright frosty start in Hackney but by the time we arrived on Blackheath c10:45 the grass was frost free.  On the way the flags were hanging down but the forecast breeze cut in as we walked onto the field.  Mid vents with race and full vents with race worked today.
 
Rowan flew his new sail* and eventually found that inverted hovers were a bit difficult with the gradually increasing wind speed.  An extra ¾ inch brake step made the kite much more controllable for him.  We went on to run through Plan A and also did some repeated UK and EU ‘roundabouts’ as a ‘warm-up’ exercise towards the end of the session.
 
The intermittent low cloud had gradually become more persistent and thickened so there was no further prospect of warming sunshine…
