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.

Too windy for a triangle was the grumble on take-off. Lots of pilots were on take-off with many more arriving all the time. You could see small groups huddled round, poured over instruments, frantically recalibrating and altering tasks. The Welsh coast was the suggestion. Today was to be my first flight in a new harness, and the idea of going over the back, deep into the black mountains was less than appealing.

Conditions were gusty and many found it challenging to get off cleanly, myself included. I'd faffed more than usual what with the harness and stuff, so by the time I was ready to go all the gaggles had disappeared. Just after take-off it was very obvious that the harness was set too wide! After a bit more faffing I managed to correct it. Conditions were as you'd expect being early spring with lumpy air, some strong thermals and sharp edges.

I glided out from the hill chasing what cloud sign I could see, but got pretty low just off Ledbury. A brown field being worked by a tracker and bingo - back up at 3 grand. It was then that I decided to try and head back to the hill. The air was surprisingly buoyant and I managed to creep over the ridge then get a good climb from just over the landing field. A few hops out front then back to the hill and a sort of top landing: -)
