Dean,

I looked at the GPS data from the first lap at the last Sacramento contest. I added or subtracted the sink rates at minimum sink and 35 mph using polar data from Dan Edwards paper. This gave me actual air rise and sink rates. I came up with about 1/3. I know there is bigger stuff out there but particularly on inverted days I think it is reasonable.

Regards,

Greg
