Notes

Climb and Speed averaged over 10 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.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

Great sky, but tricky.

An ESE forecast yet the early signs showed it to be more southerly. On take off Paul, Jim and I prepped with high expectations. The sky looked great, but once in the air good climbs were hard to find.

Eventually I managed to find a steady 2m climb and squeaked away heading out behind Tan Hill to clear the noon flypast. Once high things were very different, with 5 and 6m climbs under some ominous looking clouds, large patches of shadow, big gaps but also plenty of sailplanes.

Flying over my house in Gloucester was a thrill, but massively tempted to land for afternoon tea!

After that I never really got high again.
