A bright day with a blustery NE breeze probably averaging about 15mph. Mostly Xtra Vent sails with race rods and the Reflex Super Spider with its standard frame.
Six up so mostly called flying today against a ‘random’ musical background. The RSS was very light compared to the Xtra Vents. There is a slight issue with the RSS when it is stalled at the edge of the wind window at the end of a move. Getting it moving again requires ‘a lot of input’. With so little sail area there is inevitably ‘not a lot of grip’.
The lightness and speed of turns was certainly appreciated by the fliers who tried the kite today. We’ll have to get all the team to fly it in line with the other higher wind sails.
