what a wonderful day it was today and we had a fabulous time flying kites at Radnor Park , Folkestone in glorious sunshine. We that is Steve, Mike, Len and myself, members of the Kent Kite Flyers.
The long day started with loading Winnie, our camper van for our trip to the coast, the forecast said little wind and cloudy, oh how they got that wrong. So let's get going first up was my Delta after being newly repaired after a broken spar.
All the rest apart from the last were Rokkaku or variations of the kite design.
Mikes first kite up.
My kite made originally to raise money for the local hospice, the design has now changed and is a different clown but still conveys the same message. This kite has also been repaired and today re-bridled by club member Len who did a fantastic job and the kite stayed in the air for nearly three hours, well done and thanks.

We really enjoyed today, is was a great show and thanks to those club members for turning out on such a glorious spring like day.
Thanks for looking.
Best regards Mike.
