We were intent on checking the team kites post Berck/Cervia, mainly to dispose of any accumulation of sand. In the event there was surprisingly little but we did shake the kites out before re-packing them loosely.
We also took the opportunity to fly the original Zens against the ‘Not Zens’ especially with the green race rods that had worked so well at Berck and Cervia. I had also intended to compare the bridles but that will have to wait for another time.
We did get to fly some called moves today against various pieces from the Decs recent repertoire.
The wind on Blackheath was from the East but nowhere near as consistent as the Cervia variety. The thermaling effect was in full operation! This was a timely reminder as to why the flying in Cervia looked so good…
