Orienteering race (Brown (2.9 km)) 1:34:23  5.5 km (17:10 / km) +204m 14:29 / km
US S/M/L Champs 2011. Middle Distance. Lynn Woods, Lynn, MA, USA.
Would have had a decent result, except for the absolute disaster on control #2. Attacked directly from #1, but veered right and missed the control. Baled out to the trail 3 (!) times. Kept going around in circles, too far east/north, and never got quite close enough to see others entering/exiting the control. Lost nearly 27 minutes! Have not had an experience like that for years. From 5>6 headed south toward rock wall but veered right again, and ended up on the ridge west of the control. Took me a few minutes to figure out where I was and to get over to the correct ridge and punch the control. Fine for the rest of the course. Finished 4/9 on F55.
Walking/hiking 30:00  2.0 km (15:00 / km)
