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.

So, today was not the easiest of days at all. I couldn't get into any sort of rhythm and every climb seemed like a low save. We all launched early as the wind was due to increase and the boaty air at the start of the day kept tempting us to climb out. I was climbing out with the first gaggle but bottled it as I thought it was too early and had to watch as they all headed to base.

30 mins later I got a nice climb with Sean Simmons and Mike Humphreys and we were off. 20 mins later I was down at 500 ft scratching away again though. There were big bands of shadow and only small patches of sun to head to all the way down to Alton. In the end, I got drifted further and further towards Lasham Airfield and as I couldn't cross their launch line I made a sort of downwind leg (still hoping for a climb) but had to settle for landing outside their clubhouse. They were really welcoming and one of their members gave me a lift to the station.

Predictably, 30 mins after I landed the sky opened up with beautifully spaced cu and all the sailplanes climbed out. Anyway, I'm not complaining, none of the sailplane pilots could believe I'd done a 100 km on a 'duvet cover'. It was my first proper outing for the Cure and I'm in awe of the performance on bar and the way it holds together in turbulence, it seems more solid the more the air moves around and just steals altitude at every opportunity!

Thanks to Sean for the lift back from Stroud station and to all the pilots at Lasham for such a warm welcome.
