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.

Red values indicate suspect data, because the tracklog contains invalid points.

Metric units are used for all chart data, except for Height which is shown in feet.

Sunday turned out to be a great day!

Not a pb but I flew 69 Km & joined the mile high club @ 1700meters for the first time in the UK, & did a lot of cross wind flying which is another first.

The lift had been patchy & it had not been consistently soarable so people had been flying in thermal cycles. Not ideal from my point of view, I prefer a ridge soarable day to explore & hunt for thermals & take my time.

So I launched into the first proper gaggle starting to form & climb. We had a decent climb out but it petered out & broke up so the gaggle scattered somewhat but headed to the east side of Swindon.

I hesitated somewhat as I approached Redlands airspace, but went east, with the majority. I could see Peggy Williams heading north of Swindon on her own having already gone around the west of it. A few appeared to fly through Redlands.

I kept heading downwind then at Farringdon realised I was now pinned up against Brize Norton. Again had to make an east / decision so went east as I could see a gap in the airspace that way. So I was having to fly 90 degrees cross wind which meant flying into wind slightly & poor glide angles after taking each thermal I could find.

But the time I approached Abingdon tierdness was starting to set in & I needed to pee. At this point I should have headed more north around the airspace up past Oxford. Instead I aimed at Didcot knowing there was train station there. But the ground at Didcot looked rough, & lots of power lines etc so continued on past it. I half halfheartedly took another climb (my legs were crossed), just enough to pick out a decent sized village next to a river / canal. So landed in a large green field next to the canal. 5 minutes walk & there were 3 pubs so made myself comfortable.

Getting back to the hill was a mare. My other half ended up driving from Lee on solent to pick me up & collected Marcin & one other from Oxford. Got back to Milk about 10pm!
