|Start was from King Estate parking lot.
|I took too long at too many piles of stones.
|Moreton passed me en route to too many more piles of stones.
|E to trail downhill to road then N but passed Moreton coming down from control, overland was obviously quicker.
|But at least heading out of control was simple retracing.
|Bearing straight S but slow, hit second trail and headed W for trail S which no longer exists and backed up to use long marsh run. Uphill but messed around 100m E of control.
|N on parkway, straight W from depression, visited pit but caught up w/ many other wanderers. Three of us searched together til Richard told us it was way back. Benoit led us to location which he had already visited but didn't see control.
|Benoit walked bearing while I went up and over and arrived at control same time but took while to find cut. There's no way to do that leg fast.
|S to parkway then took trail NW then W through field of open mines. Wasted time at lake side seeking beaten up flag. I beat others who took parkway rather than trail.
|Many orienteers floundered through S end of lake so I went N on steep & slow E bank and straight to control.
|E to trail but screwed around far too long at control location, had to wait on others to point the way. This should have been as fast as finish leg.
|My only leg under 10min/k was the dart to the finish.
