We were expecting anticyclonic gloom but leaving Hackney on the A12 the sun broke through dramatically with Canary Wharf towers still submerged in the low cloud and mist.


Wet underfoot on the heath so getting started in the light breeze had its wet line moments.  2-4 mph so full sails with diamond rods.  Rowan had been hoping for a light wind day and this was just about perfect.


We don’t, by habit, go for shorter lines in light wind conditions.  I have always enjoyed the long walk forwards from the top of the window.  Sometimes the curve in the lines suggests that the kite is gliding rather than remaining under control.


Nothing really called today but we did do some close following without losing too much ground.
