Portsmouth day II

The second day started out without wind.... I was able to pull up my fled just high enough to hang on a small camera.    But soon it started souring around.... so ... here just some impression of the first hours at the festival.





Portsmouth Day I

Just had a few minutes to take some pictures.  So this is not all representative about the quantity for what you can see at Portsmouth but at least you get some insight...
The quality  of this festival is just great!

Brighton

ON my way to the international kite festival in Portsmouth, I stopped at Brighton.   What a good decision!    Very very nice place with a lot of small stores and restaurants.    Here some pictures of the coastal area including the (too touristic) Palace Pier...

Storm is coming up




Today I had an appointment with Sue and Frank for a KAP afternoon down town Antwerp. Bad weather (wind) conditions and the Rubens market forced us to look for more open space. First we tried Doel... but the wind was blowing our kites too close to the power lines to have fun.Later that afternoon we had some great flying at the boarder of 't land van Saefthinge'

't Schor




After work, I went back to Paal, a beautiful place not that far from my home town Antwerp for a late afternoon shooting of a restaurant 't Schor'.  I think this is a very unique place for a restaurant.   I should go there more often...

downlink & remote control - Camremote


This is my (new) ground station for KAP. It's based on the Camremote.   The large screen is mounted together with the remote conrole and in the back the 5,8 Mhz receiver is nicely built in with batteries and on/off switch. If needed; for example in critical situations,  I can easily put the whole unit away in a accessible bag on my belt.

Zierikzee




We had a great afternoon flying our kites above Zierikzee. A very friendly place in Zeeland (Oosterschelde).
Later that afternoon we were invited for a drink on the sailing boat of Peter (noordzeezeilcharter).  He anchored just in front of our Kap place.
