Thanks for posting Jade, and nice choice of music :)

Good to see the left of the grid was struggling as much as us amatures on the right - just goes to prove that when there is no wind, even the best of the best struggle!

It was a pleasure flying with you as well Jade - looking forward to flying with you again soon :)

Cheers

Actually, Stephen set about addressing the changing wind direction/arena space very clearly with instructions to walk forwards 4 paces 'in grid' on a number of occasions. Experienced low wind fliers know that they have to follow the wind. There is no point in trying to occupy space where other fliers are not responding accordingly...

Thanks for your efforts!

Best wishes

Felix

Just returned after near two weeks away, good to catch up with folk I ain't seen in a while, particularly Fraser in "Carry on Camping" what a laugh.
Some Bristol Pics here including Big Bri's Union Flag, nice job. Oh, and the foot fairy.

Last sight of Fraser he was walking on the road between the camp site and the hotel, about 6pm as we were leaving the site. Looked like he was headed for a camper van which had parked up at the side of the road, didn't realise he was hitch-hiking back to Scotland but he was definitely walking in the wrong direction ;)

Wonderful! I was lucky enough to get some quality time with Kite Monkey at the iQuad clinic while he camped out in our tent (he sat quietly on my belly while I had a nap!) - lovely chap, with so many facinating stories to tell. If anybody ever gets the chance, I really do recommend some good time with Kite Monkey!

Thanks for posting Ant
