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.

I'd hoped to do the Eype - Charmouth and return run but whilst the wind was ok for direction it was rather light, perhaps 10-12 mph.

John Wreford and Tony Farthing were already at The Beacon when I joined them in the air.

This was one of those flights which needed concentration. I went over to Doghouse followed by JW but unfortunately he bombed near Seatown.

Working the limited lift very carefully I got to Charmouth and really wasn't sure that I'd get back. A bit of a struggle getting back to Doghouse but then it was relatively plain sailing.

When I got back to takeoff the wind had picked up a bit and I suspect it became a little easier. I was also followed by someone on a Cure but I'm not sure that they made it.
