Check out #17 to the finish.

Everything was going right #16 to #17- I had both hands no my map, compass hard down so that I would focused and bang on the red line straight into #17. But at #17, I completely lost my nerve, making a 90 degree error out of the control and heading obliviously northwards. As I began to run through woods, I began to think that my plan was falling apart; nothing on the ground was matching up with the map. When I reached the fenced 'Play Area' it became clear that a catastrophic error had been made. Gave it everything, but the 24% time loss was inevitable- it was an embarrassing way to end, and the amount of times that my teammates deservedly called me a 'shit bastard' on the way home was innumerable.
