I got low going into the second turn area just as the sky was going blue to the south and lost too much time. I thought about re-starting, but that would mean about a 1450 re-start and I thought that would be too late - apparently not, so maybe I should have! After getting out of that hole, things went well and I was able to make good speed.
My final glide was probably the best part of the flight, as I was able to bump up to glide height without having to circle over the last 85 km of the task.
Stats for the day, 16% circling - too much, for 5.0 kt average - too low.
