Longest day 2023


A tradition for many years: riding on the longest day of the year till sunset. Only this year the winds were better in the morning..:cool:

I think you have my music playlist and I want it back!

Nice Summer solstice ride :thumbup:
It will be nice to revisit this video during the depths of winter.

Shame they were allowed to build those turbines right on the beach. A real environmental blight on the natural landscape.
The beach should be for all and not just an opportunity for get-rich-quick venture capitalists. Anyway, rant over. :)

Nice vid and a lovely beach except for the wind turbines. You and Tom are right about those things :(.
Maybe if they were like fans and made wind for us I would like them more:smilegrin:

Hey Tom, Maybe you could go over there and hotwire a couple of those things:D. Then you guys can kite on no wind days too:thumbup::thumbup:. I'm sure the owners won't like it but we could get some free wind out of it:lol::cool:.

No problem kteguru. I have over 20m of copper wire, a bunch of zip ties and some electrical tape.

We'll need a ton of power to spin'em up of course.
I know! My old mate Xi Jinping still owes me a favour. Maybe I'll call it in and get some of that tasty coal-fired amperage re-routed our way.
Just dial in your Beaufort using the dimmer switch and you're good to go. On-shore winds 365 here we come baby! :cool:
