Well here we are another Teston kite festival, I am doing this in conjunction with Trevor on the other blog as we went and photographed together. The event was held at Teston bridge on the outskirts of Maidstone over the weekend.
I will give a brief detail of the kites as we go along.
This is a Rokkaku, this is a Japanese design and come in various sizes and are a single line kite with bowed cross menders and is very stable in the air. This was hand made by Len a member of the Kent Kite Flyers.
As this was a special weekend we could fly to 1000ft with special clearance from the CAA. Normally it's 200ft.
A very good day was had by all followed by a fine BBQ to finish off.
