Orienteering race 18:22 [5] *** 2.1 km (8:45 / km) +75m 7:25 / km

sprint course at West Pt. Bobbled the first two in the rocky area, after that ok. I had the interesting experience of starting near the same time as a couple of teenaged BAOC boys. I suspect they passed me 8 times each during the course of the race. Pretty interesting to see them zooming around on various unlikely errands.

Orienteering race 36:20 [4] *** 3.25 km (11:11 / km) +95m 9:45 / km
spiked:11/12c shoes: Yellow NB T840

Middle distance race at West Pt. Pretty tired after the sprint, and then much more tired after the walk up to the start. Careful, though, and no serious errors - just one crisis of confidence on the way to #4 that caused we to wander back and forth on the way and hesitate a bit, but ended up hitting it right on. On the way to #8 I had the same experience as several others: being surprised by the fence. However, I got very lucky because I had been drifting left and ended up right at the left opening.

Small route choice problem between #12 and the finish: ran through a mud puddle that sucked off my shoe, so I finished without it, then went back to dig it out.
