About The Club
Solent Kite Flyers was formed in 1994 to provide a club for kite flyers in Southern Hampshire, the name reflecting that most members at the time lived within a few miles of The Solent, the name given to the stretch of sea that separates the Isle Of Wight from the mainland.
The SKF logo also reflects the connection with the Solent, it is created by overlaying a delta shaped kite over the Solent area and modifying it slightly as you can see in images below.
Flying days are held on second and fourth Sundays of each month, location for the former varies, whilst the latter is held at Stony Cross.
Festivals and EVents
SKF is currently involved in organising the Southampton Kite Festival held in 3rd Weekend of June. We also are asked to run and be invovled with a number of other annual and one of events, such as at Netley, Mayfield Park, Stack Competitions. We also attend a few fairs and schools to soley run our kite workshop. FK can also be seen at Portsmouth Kite Festival in the single line display arena.
The club have purchased 3 Idol fish designed by Robert Van Weers , to reflect our connections with the sea. These fish had their first public showing at the 2006 Portsmouth Kite Festival.
We also have a club windsock that makes regular appearances.
A years membership runs between AGMs, which are held in October. Cost is £15 for family membership and £10 for individual, this includes full 3rd party insurance coverage.
