I was contemplating pumping up my 7m Crossbow, but the wind dropped to around 25 knots again so I headed out for some more nice runs.
There were a few people dropping kites and having some difficulties, but it seemed under control. I offered one guy a tow in but he self rescued and sailed his kite in.
This was definitely not a good day for beginners - the wind was far too gusty and unpredictable - but I was keen to make up for some lost sessions!
Some gusts were over 35 knots and there were storms visible across to Port Arlington and north of Melbourne. Check out the wind graph - some big gusts associated with storm fronts. Summer is over.
Note: The GPS has not captured my full session due to operator error!
