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.

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

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

Very different from Tuesday - blue and fierce! I was glad to get a climb almost straight away under Mike Long and a couple of others. But at the top no one came with me downwind.

I occasionally saw a couple of wings north-east of me, probably better placed - I had to make sure I was heading east enough to miss the corner of Southampton airspace. Once I'd done that, it should have been easy, but I got low and a couple of red kites didn't quite manage to get me into a proper climb.

Then a helicopter flew over my head, and I thought I'd better get down fast in case there was any downwash (there wasn't - or it didn't reach me)

Having got a lift from Jim, I was unencumbered by any need to get back to Combe Gibbet, so the retrieve should have been easy. But I'd landed far from anywhere with a station or bus stop. A long walk to the road ended at a lonely junction. The first traffic was a young lady on a horse; she was leading a second one, but laughed at my suggestion that I should get a ride on it.

Eventually two lads in a van said they'd come back and get me in ten minutes if their wives didn't need them for anything; but before they returned, a builder stopped. He'd been picking up his work van after repairs at a nearby garage. He offered me a lift to Petersfield - in the wrong direction, but equipped with a busy station. Nevertheless, after narrowly missing several connections, I was home quite late.
