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.

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

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

First time write up: we got to Mere fairly early, small thermals already at work. After about an hour on the hill we caught a fairly weak early thermal off of the right hand spur. Base was still fairly low, but tricky to get too. After a short while wondering if I should head back to the hill, we finally caught a climb to base and pushed on to Frome. Heading down over Bradford on avon, myself and I believe Ollie were about 200ft off the deck, we head for a busy housing development site, with freshly plowed fields behind. It paid off at the very last moment, and I caught a climb back to base. Solo from here on, past castle Combe during the easiest part of the day, I noticed that there was a lot more west at base than I was expecting, so I made the decision to abandon my 80k goal at Gloucester, push East of Colerne ATZ and go for straight distance. After a couple of tricky climbs around Stroud (just sticking with weak lift saved me here) I went on glide toward cheltenham. Gloucester ILS approach, I was 90% sure there was no issue with flying over it, but I double checked with a coach via telegram just to be sure (thanks Nik). I crossed it with about 400ft to spare. Sadly at this point I was let down by some promising looking clouds, and Cleeve hills rocks were my last chance at a climb. Sadly it didn't work out, and by this point the bowl was preventing me from stomping bar and heading for 100, so I but it down safe instead of trying to riskily skirt round it. Great flight!
