Middling forecast today, but I thought since I had the day off I'd give it a try.
Went to the beach at lunchtime, and came home, not much wind. I tried again later in the afternoon when the wind had picked up a bit at home, but there still wasn't much. However, I could see the sea was cresty, so I knew there would be wind.
It is ages since I've been out, so I hoped that I still remembered how to do everything - and that the mice hadn't taken up residence in my kites! When I unpacked it all my fears were relieved - everything was in good shape.
I set up the 12, and had a go. It was up and down, a bit light, but when it was up, it was great. There wasn't a steady enough wind to stay upwind, so I did a couple of downwinders, which were great.
