Would that be a Landenberger or Piggot kite John is running there?

It's a Landy approx 4 seasons old. The main is also a Landy and probably the same age = not the big head which he is currently producing.

I must confess to having a couple of Strongbows tonight but now when I look at this photo 118 118 springs to mind. (it's a UK joke regarding a TV commercial)

For those of you who haven't fallen asleep yet here's a photo of the 2008 ex-Olympic Tornado mainsheet system. Maybe in years to come we'll all be using cascade systems within the boom!
