Definitely the main festival of 1999 for us, fantastic hot'n'sunny weather with light southerly winds - sometimes too light, but we made the most of it.

Two images by Terry, our 'neighbor' on Southsea common, showing the vertical orientation of the cell layout we tried, which looks very good when flying.

I also made a 16 cell horizontal beam (unfortunately I have no images), which I flew on two lines - a definite novelty, as you pulled the left line to turn right and the right to turn left.

A solid faced 35 cell construction and a 16 cell construction.
The 35 cell 'solid' has over 40 extra spars fitted to hold it's shape.
