Actually it looks like you did pick the better options from 4-5 and 7-8, except according to your GPS trace you went through the white after leaving #4.

I have now reported this to the organisers, DSQF will not affect my national title yet it will reduce my points accordingly.


Dear Organisers,

Ricky Thackeray observed my gps file at Attacking Point and has suggested that I crossed white area while leaving control 4 in the middle distance course. I was not aware of this fact and this may be due to the yellow colour highlighted which I used before the start making it harder to observe the white area. Map slice here:

If you deem this appropriate, I would suggest to DSQF my self, this will not affect my national series title but it will reduce my points accordingly.

Kind regards Ori

I wasn't suggesting that you do that as it wasn't easy to read that area and any number of people in these races cross white and aren't observed (someone told me afterwards they saw someone cross white quite noticeably near our CP 3 I think). Just don't do it again!!!

I didn't even see the dotted track on the map (that you used to enter #4) until the setter pointed it out afterwards. I don't think they'll change the results now as it's been a few days and results should stand as is.
