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.

It was one of those days where you started off wondering why one Earth you were walking up Caburn with no wind and the sun almost blocked out with haze. But RASP had shown that there was chance of an XC if you get away before the SBF so here I was.

After an hour or so of waiting the first birds could be seen to start going up. One pilot saw something the distance and went for it. Not sure who you were but you showed it was working and got everyone in motion. I followed Boris off the hill who got a climb in the SE breeze close to the hill, I followed him and up we went to around 1500 feet.

We were joined by a few others until we had a gaggle of Mark Rubenstein, Mike Thomas, James Archer and Guy Impey. We then played a very patient waiting game of moving slowly to Ringmer waiting for the conditions to improve. I think the first 10k must have taken about an hour. After a good climb to around 3500 I took off towards the East to push away from the 4500 airspace and the sea breeze that would be chasing us. There was a large area that was now completely in shadow and not producing any lift to get through. I could see one patch where the sun had broken through over a village and a church spire. So headed for that.

That area worked and we all started climbing back up. I then messed up and carried on pushing looking for a 'better' climb. The others stayed back and went up. I was then playing catch up but didn't stay far enough ahead of the sea air so that was me out of it watching the other three climbing up to base a few kilometers ahead, for an extra 25 k.

Still it was great to leave the hill and get back in to XC mode.
