Whitley Bay 2017

The Whitley Bay Kite Festival was held on 19th and 20th August 2017 next to the Spanish City on the sea front with a small number of invited flyers participating. The wind on the Saturday was very strong with gusts of over 40mph which made flying challenging! Saying that though there was still a good display for the public to watch. Sunday was a great day to fly with much kinder winds that dropped towards the end of the day. Our highlight was Sarah flying our Rolf Zimmermann​ Octopus by hand which was joined shortly afterwards by our Peter Lynn Octopus. It was lovely to see them ‘dance’ side by side in the sky.
