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.

Well today my Zeno arrived and as you can imagine I was itching to get out an fly, the delivery arrived at 10.30am so by the time I arrived at XC Lent winch field it was already nearly 13.00pm and the winch had broken down and only 3 members had managed to get away, this worked well for. Me today as it ment I could get set up and still possibly have people to fly with.

After some faffing it was launch time and I managed a nice climb off the first tow, slow but even so going up and a chance to play with my new glider.

Shortly after Iain Smallwood found a climb so I pushed back to work with him on our proposed 55km triangle.

Despite the obvious and typical beautiful British summer landscape the air today was more reminiscent of a spring day and thermals were small, unconsolidated but even so strong in places with my XC TRACER showing instant readings of +5.8 but likened more to being hit with machine gun fire than the wanted canon fire to cloudbase.

Conditions ment my first hour on the Zeno were tricky and testing but there after things became a lot easier to read and with some small adjustments in flying style I really started to find myself at home under the wing.

By the time myself and Iain reached turnpoint two it was now 5pm and although at first we thought the later start would make for a hard trip, the day just seemed to produce and the air became more buoyant as we pushed back toward the winch field.

Arriving at the start cylinder to close the triangle I found myself with 1000 feet too lose as the final glide just seemed to be a line of floaty air but this left me plenty of opportunity to throw some wingers and spiral dives on the Zeno and it was the perfect way to end 4.5 hours cross country flying.

I landed back at the field with Iain where we sat and talked through the day with Charles and Rich O, who had both flown great flights soon Wayne joined us and we watched Graham Steele as he thermaled about 8km from us before putting in a final glide that saw the end of an epic 8 hour flight and the UK declared triangle record.

All in a great day, here's to the next!
