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.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

A welcome opportunity for me, (winch operator, STC, ) to get some time in the flats, playing with different approaches to centering/ feeling the way to the core of thermals; frequently switching the attention back on to now, from wandering mode!

Kind of greatly under used the day. We got much better than forecast. In retrospect perhaps a triangle; but there where some big blue holes, which gliding across to get clear of Norwich class D, I allowed to sink me at only 3 pm with the sky still looking epic. Out and return may have worked better.

Wind direction backed almost 90 degrees during the almost 2 hour flight.

Good fun! Hope the next time is soon!

Thanks to Carl for the tow, Jas for being launch marshal; and the NPHGC for being in existance.

(I was flying light (40%? ) on my Base, so for me quite mobile wing, reluctant to use bar in anything other than smooth air, not my Eden 6. )
