Notes

Climb and Speed averaged over 5 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.

Having just returned from Peru 3 days ago with my entire paragliding kit (plus clothes etc) lost by the airline on the the flight out (now presumed stolen in Mexico City airport), I cobbled together some old gear - old harness, very old and too small reserve, dodgy vario gps with no sound, climbing helmet and alpaca gloves from Peru (and my other wing, luckily I had 2) and headed to the Mynd.

Lot's of people were holding back from flying but eventually a few of us took off and conditions were very nice and I soon got away - so nice to thermal in total silence (during the entire flight there was not a single beep) and flying without vario sound is something I intend to continue from now on.

I got low near Clee Hill but it never felt like I was going down and I was soon back up high. I could see that I would have to clear the Wyre forest to continue my flight and being paranoid about tree landing my only remaining wing made some silly errors - I left my last climb far too early (hoping for a climb nearer the forest) and as I got over the forest was not sure I would clear it, as there were areas of strong sink around, so ended up landing this side of them.

Bit disappointed not to have got further but glad that I still had a wing to fly next time, and enjoyed a lovely flight in lovely conditions, entirely silent and alone. Just ordered a new helmet, new reserve and maillon all on the credit card: -(
