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.

After one month away, England welcomed me back with a flyable day. So my gear and I ventured out to Buster around noon despite landing back only at 6:30 a. M. In Heathrow after 24 hour+ flight.

Spring thermals properly woke me up though and the first thermal I launched into took me to an XCable height from Buster (which almost never happens! ) There were no clouds to aim for though the north side of the south downs. I bumbled along following a buzzard until it flapped and shot off to better climbs somewhere in the distance. As I left my weak climb to try my luck downwind (never do that if you don't have anything more definitive to aim for in UK! How many times I have to learn this the hard way), I hit a lot of sink and was going to land near Harting when a west facing low ridge produced some nice lift which petered out quickly. After drifting in the weak climb for a few minutes, I left that weak climb again (mistake again… ) for a haze cap downwind which did not work and now I am near Treyford and was desperately stalking circling kites- none of whom found any lift… Oh well… It was already enough excitement for a tired brain I guess.

After landing, I did not even try hitchhiking given COVID-19 and the fact that hitchhiking near South Downs is always difficult. But to my surprise, a nice person took pity at me carrying a large pack (and I must have looked super tired) and stopped to ask me if I need a lift! Not sure if I can ever get this lucky again this season…

A beautiful day out and a surprising XC to mark the start of an interesting season amid COVID-19!
