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.

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.

The wind was getting fairly strong on launch but we managed to dribble away from Caburn in a gaggle of 8 pilots, all working together and trying to make use of whatever lift we could. It was slow, hard going for quite a while (I think the first 10km took about an hour) but then the climbs began to get more consistent and with the wind being in an excellent direction we started making good time.

I think the maximum cloudbase was about 4,400' so we weren't bothered about airspace but there was a point where the wind was pushing us under the 3,500' airspace and I came within about 200' of busting it.

The gaggle stayed together remarkably well until Ashford and then by Canterbury it was just James C and me. It was amazing seeing the Thames estuary and the Isle of Sheppey come into view and then before I knew it James and I were bombing along the north Kent coast towards Margate. I shouted for joy when we passed 100km - finally! Unfortunately we didn't quite make goal in Margate but I didn't really care, it was such an amazing flight. I can't wait to do it again!
