Beach domination!

The gents dominated the beach today - which was pretty impressive as it was roughly 5 knots all afternoon but a perfect onshore wind (which turned directly south towards the end) But that just went to show that the beach is do-able with the southernly.  @bull31 and “Roger” rocked up to supply the wanted shade on this 30c day and the entertainment began. I’m still learning the kites from visuals, so I’m sorry to not be able to give you all the specs (so hopefully our pilots can fill in

Dead Calm....

Yesterday saw a rest day from Buggying however the Blokart came out on the foreshore and @igeighty, @Tiger37, @Grants and myself all went out and had an attempted sail and a few static flies. Have picked out a present I shall be buying myself, a vented Freilein. @Chook was flying one last night and it was a pleasant flight. Tell you what, if he had a few, he would of had some buyers with both John and Trevor also keen.  Today we’re off again to see Robyn at Sandy Grove for Muntrie Cheesecak

When the wind blows....,.

Monday 15th January Back to Beachport today. Checked out the beach Blowhole Road (with 4x4 access) Excellent, however the wind was square on at the Millicent Road Car Park, (where we were based yesterday) so we split up and met in the middle. It’s a southernly 21 knot this afternoon and again another buggy day in the sun. Bit rough for the Blokart, so watched the others. John and Trevor are both on the Born Stars, Dougie on the 2.7 Vapor, Chook out with the 9.0 Ozone R1 and not sure what Ro

Beachport Fly

So the buggy wheels became sandy from our trip out to BeachPort, which is 89km south east from Kingston SE. Just before you head into town and before the caravan park is a small pull in which puts you straight on the beach. After a few groups of horses trotted through, Doug was out, keen to get a fly before another hacking group came through. With the wind SSW at 15 knots, the GT was offloaded and a 2.7m Vapor hoisted into the air, a few runs up and down the beach and Doug comes back in to grab

First Morning

@igeighty and myself rocked up around 6:30 (SA time) last night and set up camp. After a windy (relatively dry night) we wake to a windy and rather wet morning. Before the heavy falls started, I took my coffee up to the foreshore and watched the sand being pushed up onto the road. It was quite blustery up there.  So far @jhn.holgate @Rob and @Chook managed to get out on the beach yesterday. @Grants and his family are camped up too (sorry we didn’t come over to say g’day yet. Had to put up t
