:-(

Can't have been a pleasant day for racing, map reading/glasses error? (I was trying to work out what w meant, some JK results seemed to use m for 'missing')

Ah, I see, that's a bummer, I guess you punched 131. Looks like loads on course 7 got caught out by #3, which was right next to a control from another course. http://www.jk.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#71&course...

It's been wet and cold here all afternoon, just a bit further south I suppose. Best of luck for the next couple of days

Unlucky. 6 was a bit iffy, there were a load of unmapped containers in the carpark obscuring the flag from the approach direction

@graeme it was iffy, but i can't blame the containers for my error. I was trying to plan too far ahead - I'd spotted what i thought was #6 on my way from #4 to #5 and went straight to it whilst trying to work out how to get into #7 :-(
One control at a time in future!

My problem too at 17. Once I'd turned behind the right building, so the tree control was unmissable, I was looking at the route to 18. Alas, there were two tree controls behind that building :(
