1st Cross-Country in my Cirrus, W3. Started straight away into building conditions. Had a good run to Miles on the first leg, staying high and taking reasonable climbs.

Turned Miles for Kingaroy with out any issues. Decided mid-leg that I would get home too early, so decided to extend the task to shoot for 400k+. Once I turned, had one more reasonable climb before slowly heading on the downward slope. Climbing conditions were forever changing, and lacked feel.

Spoke to Allan Barnes after the flight, he said that the conditions were transiting from closely spaced climbs, to much larger. I sadly missed the next climb before the 9,000'+ blue conditions started late in the day.

Oh well, such is life. Still learning so much about the glider. Thermalling at 40kts, still to slow I think. Will jack it up at the state comps to 45kts.

On a side note, took all the sealing out of the canopy as an experiment - had air going here, there and everywhere. Though much better than the ear-piercing buzz that the mylars created.

Next flight will be at the QLD State Soaring Championships!

SeeYou!
