23rd May 2016, while travelling home from Houlgate, after a lovely weekend with Peter & the GOGs,
Jacqui received some terrible news. Her younger brother Jonathan had died in tragic circumstances.

He was quiet & unassuming with a love of photography & kites.
He worked with Jacqui in SA making and designing kites for Windsong Kites.

He loved coming to Dieppe Kite Festival and enjoyed the company of the Gits.

So it seemed appropriate that we said farewell to him in a very special way.
Jacqui & Peter met with some close friends on the cliffs above Palm Bay on Thanet 31st July 2016

The unique UK/SA kite was the only piece of colour in the clear bright sunlit sky

"Sharing The Love" with friends & family assembled and angels, doves & flowtails in the sky

On the last Sunday of the Dieppe 2016 festival, after sharing a meal with her GOG friends,
Jacqui slipped away to a quiet spot on the beach, where she committed some of Jonathan's ashes to the sea.

She took the last of the ashes to South Africa, to scatter near their father's home.
Our thoughts and hearts go with her - "Share The Love"

February 2016 - Waiting for a call...
Thank you Paul and Helene at Skybums. It's absolutely awesome and can't wait to fly it next week.

February 2016 - Peter & Jacqui back in Malaysia!

Guess who got her Brasington Gothic stuck in a tree?
Good thing they have cherry pickers out there!
