Day Two of the Canadian Champs / Maritime O Festival began at low tide with an ocean floor sprint. Can't beat that

Here are some photos

Damn, those are great photos AZ. REALLY GREAT PHOTOS! Seriiously good job where the runners are framed by the flower pots.
Do you think the guy with the GoPro will be uploading his film to the Internet?

Is Emily Ross the happiest orienteer alive?

Looks brilliant - sigh, one more place I have to try and visit, orienteering or otherwise. Seems a bit of an extreme way of enforcing course closure though, was the event controller an old guy by the name of Moses?

SEA = seabed evacuation administrator :)

I've seen the map before but would be keen to see it again...

This one gives you a feeling that the course closure time is coming very soon...

gordhun - do you mean the guy with the gopro at the middle race? That footage should be on CBC later this week and we will post when the links are available.

This was the most unique and one of the most fun orienteering races ever. So glad we made the trip. Fabulous photos, AZ.

How often does a runner get a bust made while he's in the course? Check the
photo. Great photos and brilliant idea for an O' event.

No charm. This GoPro wearer was not runing the Middle event. This guy was running the sprint Now that I look closer at the photo I see that he is one of our Ottawa members.
