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.

I was in a bit of a motivation pit in the morning. I had abandoned my plan to go to the Lakes amidst forecasts of no cumulus and top cover, and went to work. I decided to try and get something out of the day, and once I'd finished work I went to Edenfield.

It was well off to the east and completely blue but looked like it could be thermic so I walked up and got ready. Two others were doing short flights. I had one, which was promising, top landed and then relaunched. One quick climb, into wind push and climb again got me up to the airspace.

The SE wind meant my goal at Ingleton was not on, and with no cumulus at all and increasing top cover, I thought maybe getting to Chipping was on. I climbed a bit, glided a bit etc. I got a really important climb just before Accrington - I needed more height to enable me to go over!

The big barrier was Longridge Fell, but I got over easily enough. Now in the Ribble Valley I'm back home, and I pieced my way over Chipping to Parlick. Do I land in the landing field, for an easy retrieve? A good climb and marker sailplane downwind was too much to resist - coast chasing time!

I got the best climb of the day over 007 and then connected with sea breeze convergence to get all the way to Carnforth. Morecambe bay was stunning to look at! A great day, and a good reminder to keep positive - there are always opportunities even when not expected!
