On the Irish champs o site it says it might be compulsory to wear them on the course is weather is bad enough. I don't understand.

actually, it dried up... not the ground, one big marshy bog, or perhaps several, separated by streams... knee-length and t-shirt were fine.

Live results coming in , currently second, 5 mins down on Marcus - http://orienteering.ie/live/view.php?ioc2013
bunch of good guys still out there.

And Splits - http://orienteering.ie/live/splitsbrowser.php?ioc2...

Needless to say, Martin Flynn is a star. He's in a van halfway up a mountain, and beaming results to the world.

I'm clearly not fit enough for this marshy stuff -- but I did beat Mr Pinker by over five minutes on a 2 minute leg... bizarrer things have happened, perhaps.

Good work!
