    Sand in Your Undies at Kingston SE 2019

    Had a great run this arvo on the clay pan along with John and Doug. A little sticky as you head west and a bit bumpy out in the middle at high speed, but 104 kms of awesome fun. Bottom line is, the beach AND the clay pan are in brilliant nick. Look forward to catching up.

    Great to hear the positive reports. We will get to Kingston on Tuesday, and probably catch up randomly shortly after

    Had a look at the clay pan this morning with John and it is very good. We had a tiny bit of rain overnight and the surface is only slightly tacky in places. Over 100m out and I only have clay one one thong. give it a day or too and it should be rock hard. https://youtu.be/Ok6WCpOK88Y tje beach is super smooth and the wind is onshore.

    On 40m lines if you're content with big slow turns you don't need a lot of force to bring the kite around but if you want to hurry things up then you've got to give a good strong pull. I did try a 4m NS3 on this setup and it worked well - turned really quickly with minimal input but unfortunately just wasn't big enough to ski behind.

    Thanks! There is an immense playa in central Oregon called Lake Alvord that especially hardy adventurers camp out at and ride forever. It is said to make Ivanpah seem like a postage stamp. The nearest services are miles away and approach to this playa is a long ways on crude dirt roads. You need to pack in everything, water and all. The surface of Alvord is described in exactly the same way so they must be quite similar. Folks that have ridden it say you can slide your turns and scrub speed like you can on a beach. You can do this on Ivanpah but bring some extra tires.

    The benefits is performance, you will minimize the speening weight (weight in movement), the farther weight from the center of the wheel the more important it is... The tires are also very important, the lighter, the better... So, you will reach your maximum speed much faster... You can’t do this with plastic, the mechanical property are too weak. And I join you guys on the comment of the plastic rims are not perfectly round... I would say, same as bicycle race, you want to minimize the turning weight on your wheels, cause those are efforts you are working against to make the bicycle moving forward. 👍😀

    Tides are better for the weekends of 2-3 Feb, 16-17 Feb or 2-3 Mar. Can't tell what the winds will be doing at this early stage so I guess we settle on an date and hope the winds blow fair. I'm flexible on dates.

    Not sure about the path Bob as we haven't been to Sandy Grove for cheese cake yet. John H arrived today and Anne and I had coffee with Bull and Jen this morning. A quick shake down on an 11m2 R1 run today after lunch and as Bull said the beach is absolutely pristine without a bump all the way up past the granites. Tomorrow is looking like a cracker day wind and tide wise. Top temp of only 28 degrees. (only 25 today)

    So that is a cool setup! With a big kite out at the end of those 40m lines how much pull is needed on the handles to turn the barge? I see that the static load is taken up by your seat harness.
