Orienteering 53:58 [3] 4.3 km (12:33 / km)

Oceania Middle/Day 3. A little higher up the leaderboard today. Navigation was a bit scrappy, with bigger misses on 11 and 12 back in the detail. Really didn't feel in control in the white forest and was glad that we'd sent the M35s out earlier to make tracks for us.

Orienteering 2:03:21 [3] 8.6 km (14:21 / km)

Oceania Day 2. The first of the 2hr+ epics. Really enjoyed the pine forest and felt like I had the hang of it (although comparing routes with Fraser afterwards suggests that I was too soft in always going to the tracks). Lost it a bit in the low vis forest - went out to the beach on the first control which meant I lost track of where I was and lost a lot of time - although from a tourist perspective it was cool to see an NZ beach full of cars/4 wheelers. Overran 16 and struggled a bit getting through the sand dune grass, although I was glad there are no snakes in NZ. The end of the course was a slog and I managed to penetrate some impenetrable green on the way to 25.

Orienteering 1:28:23 [3] 8.6 km (10:17 / km)

Oceania Day 1. Was happy enough with my run so a bit surprised to be so far down the list. Definitely handled the sanddunes better than the last time I was in NZ. Did make a rookie 180 error on a track somehow.

Orienteering 2:09:04 [3] 8.4 km (15:22 / km)

Beechworth. Epic. Couldn't really read the map until 7. Then things started to make a little more sense. Didn't really enjoy the climb and the race seemed to go on forever. Stopped for a drink and a chat at the run through but Aislinn wasn't keen to take my SI for a warmdown so headed off down the hill again. Brutal day out.
