Race Evaluation

REGIONAL EVENT, SOUTH ASHDOWN: M21L

Ollie

1. Bad compass work
+00:30
Poor navigation - too far to the right, also hesitated a bit - overcompensated for the scale. Had to cross the same, very wet marsh, twice!
2. Bad compass work
+00:30
Didn't read the detail in the circle properly.
3. Took a chance
Bad map reading
+01:00
This was odd - I'm sure the control was higher up than the map indicated. Visited two others while trying to find this one.
4. Saw this a long way off.
5. Long, easy. Went fast and felt good.
6. Took a chance
Bad map reading
+01:00
Went well until the end, when I missed the feature.
7. Bad route choice
+00:30
Bad route choice, going back to the path and then back off it after only 10m.
8. Bad route choice
Did not plan ahead
Took a chance
Underrated difficulty
Did not like map
Unused to map
Unused to terrain
+05:00
So this time I went straight. Big mistake, not all the gorse was marked, got very confused and had to properly relocate. Exhausting terrain.
9.
10. Bad route choice
Slightly silly route (on map fold) but fast.
11. Bad distance judgement
Stopped a little early.
12. Bad route choice
Did not plan ahead
Took a chance
Underrated difficulty
Ran too fast
Read map too late
Bad compass work
Could not relocate
+05:00
Really nasty control here, in an unmarked gorse bush. Bad navigation, then overcompensated and overshot badly, also misreading the compass.
13.
14. Did not like map
Bad map reading
+00:30
Unmarked path here threw me off, hesitated.
15.
16. Did not follow plan
Underrated difficulty
Tired
Unused to terrain
+02:30
This was a tough, demanding leg, with man-eating marshes. I should have gone around the path.
17.
18.
19. Bad route choice
Confused parallel features
Bad distance judgement
+00:30
Hesitated early here.

+00:15
Hesitated early on passing Control 3.
25.
26.
27. Tired
+00:30
Had to walk a little bit of this I'm afraid - I was tired and cold by now and it was uphill.
