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.

Average Speed around course is measured from Start to Finish points.

Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

Rasp suggested it would be best from about 1400, so I didn't hurry, but was ready on the hill by 1230. My first short hop turned into a longer hop, and when Malcolm started climbing out, I followed; I'd probably not have gone for it on my own without getting higher out front, but of course if you have a little bit of height over the back of Rybury, you get a second chance at Milk Hill.

Sure enough, as we passed the spur Glyn Cassidy was on his way up below us, and a couple more were climbing from the bowl - Helen and A N Other. Glyn eventually caught me up and headed further south towards Malcolm, while I continued to work light lift over the back of the Golden Ball ridge.

Seeing Chris Williams climbing well to my north, I headed over there, but found a good thermal before I reached him. At 4,000 feet I thought this might turn out to be a really good day. In fact, I noticed cloud in almost every direction, and got ready to apply big ears. But I got a sinky glide as I approached Savernake Forest, and saw Helen land below me. Eventually I spotted Malcolm and Glyn climbing a long way to the south. I set off towards them still in big sink. I managed to find the dregs of their climb under a shaded sky, but it only dribbled me a couple of kilometres further, over a small herd of deer resting in a ploughed field. I landed beside a much bigger herd in a proper deer park.

I walked to the canal, and along it to the road north of Burbage. The first car to come along contained a couple who'd had tandem flights on their holidays, and kindly drove me right to my door. There I dumped my wing, and rode my Brompton back to Rybury, where I strapped it to the back seat of my scooter. People were still flying the Milk bowl, but getting little height, despite the magnificent sky.
