Very bad day at the office! One to forget. No HR log.

Decided to do reds first but in anti-clockwise direction which is opposite to most other people.

S>3:A 70 year old was faster than me to the first CP. I got totally disorientated in the woods leading up to it due to the number of tracks on the ground and me thinking that the ground and surroundings (e.g. forest/field boundaries) not matching. I took 18:49 and Mike Wimpenny took 13:36. I lost over 10 minutes.
3>21: No problem.
21>13: Lost 40s as I flew past the CP and had to double back.
13>15: Lost 4 mins. The map showed a road next to the Wentwood Reservoir dam that didn't exist!
15>11: OK
11>17: OK
17>23: TWO MAJOR COCK UPS. A) I went back to CP11! I didn't realise I'd done this until I reviewed the following day. I lost 6.5mins due to this. B) Lost 5 minutes as the track junction from the gravel road was hidden by big logs. I went down another and had to come back round from the opposite direction.
23>19: OK albeit a little cagey.
19>7: After collecting CP19 at 1:23, I diddly daddled for several minutes deciding on whether or not to switch to blues. I lost 4 minutes and decided to carry on to get two more red CPs before turning back. My decision to carry on was right as otherwise I would have finished early with 15 less points (if collected all blues). Lost 1min turning down the wrong track and then lost another 1minute by overshooting CP#9.
7>9: OK

Switch to blues

9>18: OK
18>4: OK
@#4 I decided to drop the furthest blue (22) to the west as it was too committing. However it was a 30 pointer!
4>16: To trig. OK
16>20: Learnt my lesson from nearby red 23 so easy to navigate. Ifor was fastest with 5:00, I was third fastest with 5:34.
20>14: OK
14>12: Lost 2 mins as I started going on a non-ideal route option then realised my error.
12>24: OK
24>8: Lost 3 minutes as I went down a wrong track and didn't realise until I checked my compass.
8>10: OK
10>6: OK
6>F: OK. Managed to get back with less than a minute to spare.

Total time lost = 37 minutes. COULD THIS BE MY WORST EVER RACE? The piss up on Friday probably had more of an effect that I thought.
