Orienteering race 49:40  ** 11.22 km (4:26 / km)
spiked:27/30c shoes: New Balance M880BY4
SSS 17 at Birchgrove (Ballast Point)
Nice street & foreshore course with lots of stairs! The main route complication was when to get #15.
Got tricked by the 1:7000 scale - bit off more than I could chew. Estimated ~8.5km for 600pts using the 200m scale on the map which was way off as it turned out to be over 11km.
Did an anticlockwise loop: 4-5-28-6-7-21-20-29-8-13-23-9-18-22-26-16-19-30-12-10-25-14-24-27-17-15 then finished with the Ballast Pt controls 11-2-1-3. In hindsight, the seemingly odd route 12-25-10-15-14-24-27-17-11 was actually better - 200m shorter and less climb. Also should've left off the peninsular (7,21) or one of the other 30 pointers (22 or 24) or 12.
Legs a bit heavy after a solid block of high intensity squash training. Navigation was pretty good - just a few hesitations - 28, 6 & 9.
Got the lot in 49.40 = 550. Ondrej 570, James & Bart 540.
