During lockdown which ended in the middle of May there was one Sunday when the weather would not have been conducive for kite flying. Since then there was one day when there was no practical breeze so we were walking the Rev Zens. There have also been a couple of windy days!
Today was very wet, relatively cold and very windy so we simply did not make any attempt to fly. When the remaining projected festivals cancelled back in June a decision was made to concentrate on flying, photographing and videoing the Jørgen Møller Hansen and Peter Malinski kites in addition to our usual low key Rev sessions. Having a photographer and a video recorder on site as well as the fliers was wishful thinking but we have been very lucky to have had Marian Linford make a timely appearance on site on a number of occasions. Otherwise we have mostly relied on ‘the team’ to grab images and video as and when possible.

I get the impression that it will take a long time for the festivals to be re-instated in circumstances where we will have no qualms in travelling and meeting with kite friends as in the past. In the meantime I am looking forward to continuing the recording of our flights in the way that we have established during the last three months.
