X-C Skiing race (Ohana SkiO) 1:24:25  9.19 km (9:11 / km) +157m 8:28 / km
Fun race at Ohana. Snow warm, pretty good cover, easy to handle. Used my Peltonen rock skis with the split tail, now more beat up than ever.
Made some mistakes staying on trails when I should have cut, as going to 3. Snow in the field was not deep and it would have been much faster than staying on the trails around. Ran the road towards 5, skiing the shoulder berm would have been faster. Followed the main trail around east to 6, I think cutting across on the dashed trail would have been better, particularly since the control was farther down the hill. Never saw the small trail on the map. Same route over towards 9 would have been better than skiing down the road towards 7 before cutting over. A little confused with the trails going from 11 to 12, I think that cost about 2 minutes.
The second map was cluttered with a lot of buildings and cross trails. I had the 1:5000 map and the bigger one might have been clearer. Several hesitations to identify controls and routes.
Thanks to Kevin for the event and to all his helpers, too!
