A tough day for me. It seemed the boyancy/shear ratio was 3 not 9 as Dr Jack showed. You'd pull up in 6 kts and ended up in -4 half a turn into the thermal. Very broken and rough thermals all day. After a while I'd just keep going straight, but you can only do that for so long. I just couldn't get good climbs today. After a bad start, I knew it was going to be a long day.
