Orienteering race (NOY7) 1:09:39 [3] ***

Good start mean i caught DM (2 min start on me) on the second control and then dogged him until the leg to five.

Then it all went bad. Found an submerged fence at speed. Went airborne and the wire cut into the tongue of my shoe and nearly sheared through the lace. In my dazed state i wandered around the wrong creek for a few minutes before the haze cleared and cursing my luck took off to try and chase DM back down. ~ i never saw him again until after i finished and he was going down the finish chute!!

Was pretty good navigating from 5 through to 10. Caught SH (4 min start on me) on the ridge track befor edescending into 10. Made an error of judgement to descend and cross the valley track rather than acsending back to the track. 11 to 15 was no problems. Made a costly error on 16 and ended up back on 2 as i did not see the stump in the green and figured i was further north than i was and promptly headed south. realised my mistake and found the tree root/stump. then off to the finish.

Though i think callum and angus might need some remedial maths as the GPS watch said 66 not the 69 i was credited with. Oh well wasn't to know as i had to leave right away.

**Edit: Sorry boys my mistake you were right i misread my watch and never checked it again**
