The Wirral Kite Festival 2012

Saturday was dreadful. Very strong wind, rain and hail. We tried a Manta ray from the bridle be even that was too dangerous. We ended up flying 50m tails from a pilot. The least satisfactory display that we have put on for years.

But Sunday was glorious. A little slow to start but it turned out to be a lovely sunny day with a perfect wind that allowed people to fly close without difficulty.

Everyone was in the same "dip", so we had to squeeze to get as many kites up as possible without crowding everyone else too much, but still managed a good display:

Craig and Sue were proud to display their gecko:

Everyone else put on a great display too:

And there were lots of happy flyers enjoying themselves:
