16/03/2014 Blackheath

A sharp clear blue sky today, almost cloudless at c10:15, wind from WNW so the sun was not in the middle of the wind window.  Similar temperature to last weekend but felt cooler occasionally given the relative direction of sun and wind. <grins>
 
Mid vented with Race Rods only occasionally felt over powered.
 
We took advantage of the mild conditions to do a kit check ahead of the Berck, Cervia and Weymouth events.  Ferrules, spar sets, leading edge mesh and lines were reviewed and various components were set aside for further attention, as in TLC.  Given that the main team kites arrived in 2008 they are still in very good shape.
 
It appears that the Turkmenistan event will not happen in 2014.  We also learned that Bristol will be a biennial event, next occurring in 2015.  We may have to dream up some alternative ‘pop up’ events to fill the gaps!  Super 16 anyone?
