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.

My first decent XC. Quite an exciting flight really. Was breezy on hill and lots were waiting for it to calm down. A SBF was visible approaching from SW with a westerly wind on the hill. The wind dropped, lots of pilots launched and quickly got some height, I quickly unpacked and launched a few minutes later. I almost missed the SBF that I think was towards the back of take off. Pilots were searching out front but I gambled on it being behind us and found a climb into it that committed me to an XC of some kind. Cloud base was about 2000' so not much to play with.

I drifted east trying to find bits of SBF lift with some success, pushing east when I got to cloud base or lost the lift.

Inland from Polegate there seemed to be a larger area of convergence where I was able to just push downwind.

Past Hailsham I got into some strong lift and had to spiral dive out of cloud over Hearstmonceux. That got the pulse racing.

Then on half bar I had an asymmetric collapse that had to be pumped out - a new experience for me but all good.

Realising I needed to push towards the sea to avoid further cloud suck I eventually lost the lift and landed in a nicely cut grass field close to a footpath to Crowhurst. Phew.
