Cervia 21st April-1st May 2017
Thanks to Davide Baroni for these images.
Flying into the sun is a feature of Cervia. The breeze often starts offshore in the morning so we are looking East and then shifts to onshore late morning or early afternoon.
This image is from 29th April, 10:29 in the morning.

Set up on 21st April 2017
From the Blog:- 'An excellent first day here in
Cervia. Good onshore breeze from the start of play this morning...
Got to pitch the 'tent' in the usual place and get warmed up before lunch at 111.'
Set up on 23rd April 2017
From the Blog:- 'Another fine day in Cervia. The wind switched at about 12:15 at which point we had adjourned to 111. We were intent on taking the opportunity to get some time in the arena after the early lunch which we duly
did. Team for Fun joined us soon after 2:00 pm so we were able to combine forces for a while before vacating the space for the formal events which start at 2:30pm.'
Monday 1st May 2017, 13:40pm.
From the Blog:- 'Monday started with a light onshore breeze. All very encouraging. We went to lunch hoping for a classic Cervia afternoon.
What we got was a quickly increasing breeze, probably a consistent 30 mph which simply closed the event...
We managed to get the kites and kit safely stowed without loss or accident but it was a close call...'
Two images from later in the afternoon.
