00062 Engaging the rail

Off to ladies bay again. Another progression with the 11m. The beach was a little busy, but not so much as to be dangerous (that's how it felt anyway). This time the wind increased while I was out, so even though I began underpowered and had to work the kite to generate enough pull, later on I had a couple of half beach runs on the starboard tack which were so good that I can see, given the right kite in the right wind, I could work on sussing the going upwind thing.

As for the doorbell rig - well, the new batteries seem to give it a range of about 2-6 meters, so I'm going to play around with the power source to see if I've muffed the battery thing and will have tro go back to AAs.
