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.

There had been a plethora of Notams all over the area, but most had been cancelled. That still left the transit of the Red Arrows, from Fairfor to Goodwood and back, at a not precisely specified time. And then there was the World Cup third-place play-off, and the men's singles final at Wimbledon…

So perhaps a short flight was a good thing. I got my wing out in the bowl, but when Kirsty landed and said it was horrible, I followed Steve Newcombe's example and walked around to the White Horse spur, arriving as a gaggle climbed out.

For the next hour or so, no one got high, and I slope-landed several times. But then a couple pushed boldly out front and went up, prompting a large bunch of us to pimp off them. My first climb seemed to fizzle out over the bowl, and rather than charge blindly downwind I calculated that I might just be able to get back to join a gaggle still climbing over the White Horse launch. I made it (Phantoms are good)

But I reached base later than the rest, so set off on my own, chasing Steve. I joined him in a zero, and then glided even lower. As we wandered around looking for a climb, I found one, while Steve bombed. But I lost mine well short of base, and my next glide was to the ground at Ogbourne St George. A local resident came to welcome me and point out the exit from the field - he said the farmer was grumpy, and would be so even if I'd landed and handed him a gold bar, so I didn't hang around to meet him.

A quick drink in the Inn With The Well, and home in time to watch the second half of the football. Nice.
