Hmm!? Oh well, I had the light wind moment at Victoria Park today when it became evident that the kite had been in air moving in one direction but was abruptly in air moving in the opposite direction. Admittedly the wind speeds concerned were not very high but it was disconcerting to see the curvature of the lines reversing.

Also check out Play365 (GT) being filmed for German TV - Note this is the far end of "the Beer Tent" also, note the Rev T shirt.... He's a good boy.





Should have had his TFS on Tour T shirt on :kid_smartass:

Tuesday turned out OK once the wind swung around. Peter Lynn and crew flew a 'very large kite' on somewhat more than four lines.

Checked it out with both Firefox 4 and Inter Explorer 8. It works fine.
Try going to YouTube.com and then search for "25th Kitefestival Berck sur Mer 2011"

Final day with strong northerly wind but many fliers have gone. The crowds of the last few days have vanished so it should be easier getting out of town heading for the ferry. One last mega team and arena spot ahead of that...
