20/04/2014 After Berck-Plage

Posted by Felix Mottram, 20 April 2014 · 108 views

Getting to Berck on Thursday 17th April in the evening proved to be quite difficult. Delays in London meant that we would have missed our booked time on the Channel Tunnel.  5 hour delays at the tunnel meant that rather than arriving at Rang-du-Fliers at Midnight we got there at 5:00am on Friday morning!  (This was the late contingent, 5 of the team were in Berck earlier in the day on Thursday.)
 
Despite the difficult start it proved to be a great weekend in the Berck style; team flying early in the day, some ‘run-through’ opportunities for the mega-team late morning, followed by lunch in the tent.
 
Afternoons started with Mega flies, two line and four line and then demos by the various teams.
 
Along the way the Decs flew the standard 1.5 sails with Diamond rods in full team for the first time.  It will take a while for the team to get used to the responsiveness of these spars but I am sure that they will be used to great effect. <grins>
 
The flight case will be prepared tomorrow for the Cervia trip.
