Day 1 of QB3 event at lovely and warm Coffs Harbour - middle distance on a great sand dune area adjacent to the Game Fishing Club. Orienteered well - just a few small hiccups on the odd control - used the tracks a lot to simplify the complexity of the terrain (meant wider route choice but the direct line was both more physical and technical - leg held up well - finished toward the top - but helped by some of the pre race favourites miss punching. Visited the Club that evening for a club dinner and views of the water. Temp was around 20C.
