Summary

Analysis of my flight 20 Aug 2008.

Narrative

I've cropped a short section of the flight, so I can see what happened when I tried to catch a thermal.

The Profile view show clearl what went wrong: I should have gone further upwind before turning, then when I turned it should have been much tighter than this.

Very interesting stuff!
