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.

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.

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.

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.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

This was one of those rare days where something completely unexpected and incredible happened! We'd been flying around all day, not really getting very high and not near base. The sky started looking better, so I thought about optimistically trying a small triangle (the wind had been quite strong)

Straight from takeoff I got up to base (around 3,400 feet) and went to near Longridge and back. I saw a line of clouds forming in front, and pushed into wind in that direction. I circled to base again, then pushed into wind, and kept going up. I went to the side of the cloud for safe separation form a nearby paraglider, and still kept going up all the way to chipping! The views were stunning, 5,300ft looking over the tops of the clouds, with the Forest of Bowland stretched out below me. It was great to see Brian Stewart and Simon Baillie plus a couple of others, but we were very fortunate as only 5 or 6 made it up out of over 40 pilots on the hill!

I went into mission mode again and used the altitude to easily complete the triangle. But really it wasn't about the league points, it was about having such a magical experience that will live forever in my memories. It's a mantra I've tried to have this year, to worry less about the points and to simply enjoy the experience. That's why we do it after all!
