Attackpoint - performance and training tools for orienteering athletes

Race Evaluation

WIM Regional Event: M21L


1. No attack point
Didn't hit this one straight on. Contoured around side of hill to west-facing slope.
2. Did not follow plan
3. Did not plan ahead
4. No attack point
Best attack point for this one was a bend in the path behind the control, from which the control was visible. I did take a quick look along a line of earth features the control seemed to be on, but to no avail.
6. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Confused parallel features
Missed one of the two paths leaving the forest road and headed up the wrong gentle spur.
9. Bad route choice
Got caught in some marsh, which slowed me down.
10. Bad route choice
Bad distance judgement
Perhaps dodgy route choice, started out by heading at almost 90 degrees to the line. Wanted to get out of the marshy section. Also entered the section of forest containing the control from too far along the path.
12. Did not like map
Bad compass work
Got slightly confused by the map here. Veered a little to the north and found a fence I shouldn't have.
13. Bad map reading
14. Bad compass work
15. Bad compass work
Confused parallel features
Could not relocate
Not thinking clearly
My biggest mistake. Should have been easy. Didn't check compass direction correctly and ran up wrong re-entrant.
16. No attack point
Did not like map
Found an unmarked ride. Not helpful but didn't throw me too much.
17. Could perhaps have taken a straighter route. Also one section of rough-open was very slow-going.
19. No attack point
Bad route choice
Attack point was nearby ride apparently visible from other side of gentle valley. I failed to see it from there and only found it after finding the control!
20. Tired
22. Did not plan ahead
Took a chance
Did not like map
Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Not thinking clearly
Should have followed compass better. Didn't take me long to find one of two paths leading to the control, but I seemed to think it was at the bottom of the hill and so ran about 200m to the north to a wrong control instead.
23. Tired
An easy leg - follow the stream - but I hesitated a couple of times.
24. Tired
Not thinking clearly
Lacked confidence
Slight hesitation as I hadn't noticed the control was to one side of the re-entrant I was running up.
