My first time at the Beacon and after watching the sky gods climb out I thought I'd try for a 50k triangle. I quickly realised on the 2nd and longest leg that the drift and my slow speed was not going to cut it, so opted to try and get back to take-off. It took me a while, seemingly spending all the return leg chasing sunlit patches and ploughed fields, with a couple of low saves too. I made it eventually, sneaking back over the ridge with a couple of hundred feet to spare. Then I entered my flight and the XCL said I'd done a small triangle after all.
