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.

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.

Many thanks to NHGPC and all the crew that made it a brilliant day. The Norfolk club are very friendly and welcoming to all. I arranged to go there via Darren Barter, Jason Harper and Bill Bankes-Jones. They were all very accommodating with lots more helpers there. Thanks guys. Travelled up in the morning with Mark Hugh Catherine whilst Kenny and Will travelled up the night before. Will was doing his tow conversion.

The triangle was set a little smaller than we originally planned as we were worried about the seabreeze coming in and the into wind leg at the end. The into wind leg never was a problem but the seabreeze did come into the field about 5pm. The middle leg was the hardest for me as I made one mistake leaving a climb with Hugh and pushing forward to Mark who called out a 3m/s - I thought I was on a hang glider but forgot how slow the paraglider glides!

Took forever to reach him through a very long sinky glide and I arrived low down the side of some airspace. I finally found a weak climb but it was drifting me into the cylinder! With a lot of luck it suddenly picked up strength metres before the cylinder and popped me up and over the top. I want to look through the fancy SeeYou airspace program as it was very close!

I then tried to play catch up with Mark and Hugh but it was quite blue to be pushing fast on my own and I found myself low again so told myself to forget a out them and just get to goal. The first bit of the final leg was really easy. About 10km of dolphining and lift lines. Then the second bit kept producing really weak climbs and very very strong sink. I got a little stuck and made a bold decision to glide low to a cloud with some smoke blowing the wrong way. Really heavy sink all the way there and I arrived low enough to start counting tiles on the houses roof - lowest of the flight and maybe my lowest save of the year.

I thought I had mucked up and the flight would be over, 4km from goal! But the decision paid off and I had my strongest climb of the day to cloud base around 5000ft, much higher than the 3:1 needed for goal! I could have made that on my parachute! But I wanted to view the Norfolk flats and look at the coast. It is a very pretty part of the country from above - the views go on forever. Highly recommended. I will return.
