Nominal 7.1km, 125m climb
Amongst my worst orienteering ever, aside from the bad back and waterlogged forest. Nothing on the ground seemed to match what I saw on the map, particularly in the north on the Common where I went so well last time I was here.
+20min wandering around to find #3, +3min to #4, then another +12min to find #5. After that, not too bad but multiple attempts to find #15 and #17. Stepped in a 'little' stream on the way to #18 that comedically and unexpectedly went up to my waist!
Amazed to find I was only 37th of 51, a few were worse than me and there were some retirements, in frustration, no doubt. There's also a bubble in my compass now :-/
