May 21/13 – Graham PPG course – day 2 – pm – Working on kiting

We were planning to get together at 5 pm but the wind was still gusting to 37 km/h. We decided to wait and by 6:30 conditions were OK to start kiting. There was large cumulonimbus near by but since we were not planing to fly – just ground handle – that was ok. We started with Fides XS and a small gust front came through so we went to my very small training glider then back to Fides. After couple of hours Graham was able to forward inflate and do wicked 400 yards runs up and down the field with great canopy control. He will fly soon.
