23/02/2014 Blackheath

22mph gusting to 38mph* is not really very comfortable for team flying so we did not attempt too much today with the Xtra Vents and 4 wrap rods.  However, a neat rolling ball materialized at one point before a gust prompted a quick but elegant un-winding fire drill…
 
The Xtra Vents ‘side slide’ and ‘reverse fly’ very smoothly and some outward facing counter ‘pendulums’ looked very neat as well as the close knit rolling rotations that have become central to our ‘not called’ flying.
 
That 'indicator light' issue in the car from the beginning of the month on leaving Blackheath proved to be expensive.  Driving back to Hackney today the Thames cable crossing was still operating so maybe it was not all that windy after all!
