There are three tasks one must accomplish in order to reach the zenith in soaring, a Gold badge with three diamonds. When I got into the sport in around 1970, you would occasionally hear whispered in hushed reverence, "He's a three diamond pilot." My first diamond was more an accident than anything else when I was thrashed through the rotor and spat into a wave that carried me to 32,000 feet and back to the ground in a total flying time of 47 minutes. A few months later I tried for my second diamond which required a flight of at least 300 km (187 miles) with a landing at a point you designate before takeoff. A thunderstorm parked over my declared airport forced me to land ten miles away and accept the consolation prize of Gold Distance to complete my Gold Badge. Ten years and five hundred glider hours later, I still hadn't made a concerted effort to get either of the two remaining diamonds.
