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.

It was looking like the last day before the weather broke so Rob, Ollie and set off for the Beacon. Rob had set a 70k triangle which a few on the hill decided to do too, others were going bigger. Some were thinking of a downwind run and for a short while I was undecided even though it had looked very light on RASP in the morning. Then Ollie reminded me to 'stick with the plan'

Took off with Ollie and a few of us scratched some lift before getting above the hill. I then flew straight out to where Joe Dart was climbing and off we all went. Being light on my glider and certainly slower than the Zenos and Enzos, I was on my own almost from the beginning.

I was getting low as I flew over Droitwich, but with determination and focus levels set to max, I found a climb and tagged the first TP. Heading south now and finding enough lift in the blue to stay high enough not to feel the heat of the day, I got a good climb over junction 5 of the M5 which took me to over 6000' and headed for TP2. Down to 1500' I found some rising air over Drakes Broughton and spent a little time hunting better before hooking it and back up to 6000'. Nearing Bredon Hill I was needing another climb to go over the back of it to the turnpoint, which was in shade at the time, and get back to top up. I certainly didn't want to lose it now, so to make sure, I stopped at Upton to top up to 5000' therefore coming over Malvern with plenty to spare. My FlySkyHy gave me a little fanfare and I then hunted some sink to come in and land with Rob, Tony W and Charles. Ending the day with in the pub garden with Rob, Ollie, Charles, Alex, Kirsty, Idris, Joe and Mark, all of us having closed our declared triangles.

What a superb day. PB triangle and first declared flight in the UK.
