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.

First visit to Hambledon Hill in the great, if slightly bleary company of Dan.

The long wheat out front made inbound thermals pretty easy to spot and we were soon away with a. N. other pilot (name? ) down from London.

Slightly lumpy inversion early on ≈ 3,500' climbs below were strong, above, more mincing.

We played leapfrog pushing out hunting for climbs on separate tracks then rejoining and were nicely in sync, until I fluffed pushing too far into the blue hole to the North, and had to turn back almost into wind to join Dan who was already speccing out and at Cerne Abbas we were separated by altitude.

I ended up pretty low just downwind of the horny hillside Giant, who clearly had a head of steam on that day, and got a nice steady climb back to ≈ 4,500.

Thereafter we worked the SBF, switching between the lifty but lower Virga at the uphill end of the wedge, to the sporadic and higher clouds triggered further inland by the thin end of the SBF wedge. The front was not a clean, well-defined line, so at one point I fell into the lee side, but with quite a bit of height to spare - I decided to push back through the front to get on the lifty side - wing wobbling around like a jelly, until bashing through the rough and tumble on 3/4 bar, which was much more comfortable.

Past Yeovil, I pushed to a line of clouds to the North of the main line - turns out this was the SBF coming from the Bristol Channel and the wind clearly switch North (instead of due East at launch.

Landed to be met by my mum with a huge G&T and spare ribs for tea: )
