    Measured heading rose has RU29 flying about 115 degrees to the right of the commanded heading

    We made the waypoint change to give a commanded heading near 300 degrees.  This turned the glider to fly more like an ENE direction, directly at our proposed pick up point.  We are 70 km away from that point that is 40 nautical miles south of Galle, Sri Lanka and is right on the souther edge of the shipping lanes.  We have been making about 15 km of progress per day.


    We will be doing some flight tests for the remainder of this day (friday) in preparation for the station keeping we will need to do at the pick up point.
