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.

If you guys were here you would know

Actually it was French TV and when one is here for 10 days the TFS shirts are for weekends 

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:

Wednesday was better once the wind turned again. A very good 20 grid mega fly called by Ben from FLIC.

Une, Deux, Tree (in an Irish French accent)

Ran across this Berck video on Face book. I am not sure if anyone published the URL here, so anyway, here it is:

Saturday already... Could not access the URL not that I tried very hard. Big party last night at the tent, today, a slow start with very light air but building to near perfect conditions ;-)

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"

Getting dark there now. Was that a Wallace (and Gromit) I saw?

Yes!

And if you look right now, it the Saturday Night Night fly. Lots of silver and white kites.

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...

Back home the link worked just fine. I had seen the video via the other link...

Off to Cervia in the morning!
