Dave’s Day 6

Today was  a long day 5:52 on task and landed at 20:09 for 117 km/hr over 692 km.  I made it home, but was very slow as I had to take some 1 kt and less climbs at the end to get on final glide.  It is better to get home slowly than not at all, but I would have been happier with fast.


The one low spot that shows at 18:20 on the barograph was the result of going left when I should have gone right.  I was with a gaggle, and one glider and I went left and the rest went right.  Those who went right found a thermal that we missed and that got them home 17 minutes sooner.  That was a costly decision!
