Notes

Climb and Speed averaged over 4 second intervals.

These values may be lower than those shown by a flight instrument, which has access to continuous raw data.

Average Speed around course is measured from Start to Finish points.

Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

On the slog up Talybont (which everyone calls the hill, although its name is Waun Rydd), I was wishing I'd brought my Yeti. But, of course, as soon as I'd got to the top I was glad I had my Phantom and pod.

While the first experts of the North South Cup tried their luck, it looked both scratchy and too busy for me, although gaggles got away now and then. Eventually I ran out of excuses, and, although it was still crowded for a while, a nice climb soon came along, and up I went with Viv Fouracre, Mike Humphries and a few others.

It was a big treat to fly for the firstover Pen y Fan, the highest point in the Brecon Beacons. I remembered Tim Pentreath's video, taken on a much longer flight, of him waving to walkers on the summit as he searched for a climb, and congratulated myself on being far too high to wave to anyone.

With the wind light and variable, I pushed a bit further to the west, then decided to try and fly back to take-off and maybe to the campsite at Llangattock - but glided to the ground a bit short of Brecon.

A man who'd been walking his dog gave me a lift to the ring road, and then a bunch of lads gave me a lift one roundabout further on, before working out that they weren't going my way. Eventually I shared a taxi back to the hill with Kirsty, Ali Andrews and others. A very nice day.
