Anybody up for KAP Week this year? I'm in if you are.
What week works good for you?
Sure. I'm retired, so any week that Aeolus smiles upon me is good.
Early September ?
I may be wrong but I seem to recall that a 2 week window gave more of us more of a chance....
Or maybe I'm just dreaming. Again.
Hey Kevin, how's that new stow-away kite doing ?
WWKW 2019 sounds great.
2nd half of September works.
Let's ink it.
Count me in!
Paul, I need to test it in stronger winds which are coming over the next 2 days. I'll report back in due course!
Sounds good to me. Are we looking at Sept 9th to 22nd? or do we think we want to stick to a week?
I'm game too!!
I'm in. I've not done a lot of KAP lately but will Fly High during WWKW 2019
Me too. Smooth winds for you all
Fun initiative to join! Wish you all clean winds.
Great idea. I'm in.
Count me in.
What ARE the dates ? I may have missed the decision .... last 2 weeks in September ?
If we say 14th to 29th then that covers 3 weekends.
Perfect dates for me! Will be flying nearly every day over Avalon, NJ...
WWKW 2019 starts this Saturday.
I've just fixed my bugged out Panono 360 camera ball, so I'm looking forward to getting out there and putting it to good use again.
Day 1 - anyone fly?
I did. Still going through 795 photos. :-) Should have something soon.
By chance, not realising it was WWKW 2019, Ken and I did some KAP on Sunday at Bridlington UK. There was a Land Sand Stone festival over the weekend.
On the Friday they did a 1.3 mile sand drawing on the South Beach. Saturday was focused on Land art at Sewerby Hall and Sunday when we went, there was a family stone stacking competition on the North Beach with some "professional" stackers too. There were 3 really big sand drawings and a smaller one which was our objective.
We used a 10ft delta which flew well once above the hotel level. The SJ4000 on a simple Picavet rig looking straight down over the sand drawings just took in the whole picture. On the way back I took over and went along the Promenade, dodging the lamposts, for a wider view which included the sea as the high tide approached.
When we got to the stone stacking area the camera was angled at about 45° to take in the atmosphere.
Good timing, Sue!
Gets dark early these days,,,
This was after all the horses had gone to bed. The Severalls at Newmarket raked and ready for the gallops in the morning,
Our first WWKW 2019 session in Ljubljana was turbulent, exhausting and produced less than we expected ... but still, every KAP is a good KAP! ;-)
See a couple more of those
on our KAP website
And we fly again ASAP! :-)

Sorry for being away way too long. I understand that the WWKW concept is still going and that's nice to see!
I do KAP every now and then and I found out just in time that WWKW2019 is being held right now. So I grabbed my stuff and made it happen.

At last, I managed to take some photos!
On perhaps the very last day of the summer...
Awesome - live view assisted or a lucky autoKAP catch?

Live view..and a bit of luck. It's accidental in as much as I was not out to snap rowers but to capture work on our new cycle bridge over the Cam:
but despite piling on the height I couldn't frame both sides of the river.
I did manage to catch a train though:
