Don't foget that if it comes to risking like and limb, you can always
cut the line.  If flying in heavy conditions, you may care to consider
anchoring with a short length of sacrificial line that you wouldn't mind
cutting, to get the thing down.  Remember that with the line cut, a soft kite
collapses and doesn't drift as far as you might expect.  Alternatively,
it is easy to rig a control line that destroys the shape, causing the
thing to fall out of the sky.
