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.

Only a few people arrived on take-off. Graham had his new Gin Boomer (Yellow), Steve was back on his OXA3, with the Photon out on loan to Dave. Winds were stronger than forecast, and cloud-base was lowish, but we all wanted to try for a triangle.

A 43k task was shared and we waited to see what would happen. Richard and I were first off and found something just out front. We kept trying to push out toward Worcester, but couldn't find anything before we felt the need to turn back and hang around for conditions to improve.

Steve and the others took off, with Steve pushing on hard and eventually finding a good climb that committed us all to setting off. Base was around 3 grand, but was improving with each climb. As we tagged the first turnpoint just past Worcester, the sky really opened up! The climbs on the run toward Pershore were strong and regular, making it easy to stay high.

I lost sight of Steve and presumed he'd coasted to the 2nd turnpoint. A huge cloud was waiting for us over Pershore, making it a challenge to stay out of the white room. Straight glide back with maybe three climbs and I was back on take-off for 3pm, with lots still flying! What a surprise fab day!
