I had no intention to miss out on this quad clinic as I did on the previous one in Denmark. Nonetheless I believe it was a boost for my QLK-skills then anyhow since I was determined to compensate for the missed training event. This time however I'll use the prior practice time to be prepared so that I can get as much as possible out of the (real) clinic.

Would practising these maneuvers (or building blocks thereof, the movements i.e.) be a good preparation for the team flying part of the clinic?:

During my first and only group flying event (during the Nordic Kite Meeting) I had the longest line sets in use. My long lines (40kg and 75kg) are 40m long, which corresponds to 131ft, not 120ft. Would this be OK (personally I had no problems with them)?

Those maneuvers are extremely dated and simple, some calls details have evolved, but the basic movements required should serve as good practice items.

With regard to 40m, I believe that is the international (non US) team standard, it’s close enough to play - the only challenge it presents is during “follow the train” maneuvers where kites with shorter lines are leaving wake or turbulence, through which anything on longer lines will have to fly (like driving a bumpy road).

Worst case, it’s easy enough to shorten within a few minutes, which I am happy to personally assist with if it’s agreed to be advantageous. ;)
