Orienteering race (SA Champs Middle) 44:26  4.64 km (9:35 / km) +109m 8:34 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talons 220
Very hot but almost everyone suffered. Started cautiously but well. #4 I was on line then was distracted by some boulders to the right. #5 was a huge mess. I got into an open area and could not quite fit the features to the map. Should have used the gully to get to some rocks and use them as the attackpoint.
#6 was a long leg and a slog in the heat. Found the others OK with a few seconds lost here and there.
Although I lost about four minutes, I knew that there was potential for others to make similar mistakes. So got 2nd just ahead of Roger.
