Blackheath Kite Festival

Mon, June 14th, 2010

Benson Deep Space kitesI had two great days at the Blackheath Kite (and Bike) Festival last weekend. It’s always good to meet up with old friends and get to know new ones and there were plenty there, especially from Fractured Axel.

On Saturday I commentated on a trick flying display in the arena with Chris Goff and Piero Serra performing the tricks I called out to order.

On the Sunday there were a lot of people flying Benson Deep Space kites so we decided to do a group photo – 16 in all, although I think there were still one or two flying on the far side of the field.

The Scratch Bunnies (the current world champion kite team, on the day comprising Carl and James Robertshaw, Chris Goff and Sasha Reading) put on a great impromptu display. I think it was the only event in the arena to get a spontaneous round of applause from the crowd during their routine. Precision flying at its best.
