They have so few passengers on many flights they just bin them last minute as it’s cheaper To pay compensation than run the flight empty . Also she said to watch out for compulsory Covid test before yo...

Andy those dates & times are correct but have you actually tried to book a flight yet? Only because TAP website won’t let me confirm the changing of Marc’s flight so I tried to book a one way ticket & it just kept saying no valid date?? So I’m not even sure there’s flights going. Have a che...

Rest Bay Live Weather Station

I may be wrong but I think the station is actually under reading. The other day we were all out riding nicely but when I checked it was only showing around 14-15knots. What direction was it Marc ? It’s hard to see trend and instantaneous values as the uploads are throttled by Davis . I’d guess the ...

Nice one :) Do we know yet what the reading is like vs beach level with the venturi of where it is setup? My guess is it will over read by about 10-15% with Venturi and ridge lift in a SW . Won’t take long to calibrate but seems the Davis software doesn’t allow that . At aber I have calibration fig...

Just heard from a completely different source there is quite a head of steam behind this . The CLSC have heard same .
I hope the BKsA might get involved but I doubt it given the experience I had with them re covid

@james perhaps the club needs to approach Carms council and the rangers ?

Meanwhile I'm speaking to Neil in N.E. Brazil, there has no been no signs of the virus in Cumbuco or further north, everything is open as normal. Same issue as here ; national decisions on QT make no sense . Even in tiny Portugal the difference between north and Lisbon is night and day . Brazil x10...

Worse is when you arrive and immigration decide it’s not good enough. Wendy was due to go to India in November ; it’s off ; not only is India Pretty bad but BA just cancelled both flights
So full refund and no claim required . I’ve a feeling this will still be a thing next year too :(

D-iD of you see Toby’s post on KF . You need documented cover for Covid treatment costs in the policy . Getting a policy with that and travelling against FCO advice will be a task. I had to get cover for our trip here this year and the small print was a minefield . The biggest issue was pre existing...

Seriously please listen ! And tell anyone who doesn’t . I’m still in viana and 99% of the french who are here ; are here because in July and august their local beach has a blanket ban on kitesports; do we want rest to be off limits for the bathing season ?
