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 lovely sky should have been the warning that conditions were quite strong. As it worked out, they were also a bit hit and miss.

A small gang gathered atop the Beacon with talk of triangles. Winds were light and from the NW. At 11:30 the sky looked epic. Graham S was first off and made it look easy as he cruised around then climbed to base. By the time the main group fled the nest conditions were less favourable, which sorted the wheat from the going down chaffs. I was chaff!

Taxi back to take off and time for round two. 3 of us on take-off this time, waiting for any sign things were going up. Peggy was off first, but found nothing. 10 minutes later (seemed like ages) I spotted some birds out front - launch. Conditions were certainly quite punchy!

Had planned to fly over Bredon Hill, but ended up punching for the motorway and pushing back. I managed to climb from quite low in what turned out to be one of the roughest thermals of the day! Down safe part way back to the hill, and then a great retrieve - Thanks Peggy.
