Orienteering race 44:59 
Troll Cup Day 2. Better Day today. Enjoyed having Charlie starting just 20 sec ahead of me on the chase start. If one of my female competitors would have been close to me, I would have been rattled. But Charlie is my good bud and is not a threat in my category or my gender, so it was fun knowing I'd likely see him on the course.
He headed straight north through the woods on #1, but that looked risky to me, so I took the trail to the marsh and stream and followed it up. Charlie paused about 70 m from the control and came in from my right,punching about 10 sec ahead of me. He navigated better than I would have out of the starting blocks.
We chose similar routes to #2, both heading up,the shallow reentrant to the end of the wall then into the control. He maintained the 10 sec lead, but got away quicker than I did. I saw the trail to the NE and went more northerly, coming out just a little bit ahead of him on the trail. I led into #3, but we punched together.
Charlie went lower on #4. I went higher and straighter, but near the control, got a bit confused. Charlie came in from the right, crossed my path on a straight line to the control. That helped me. He got his 10 sec lead back.
Didn't see him until I was almost to #5. I went left and followed a line of boulders to the area of the control. Charlie must have found it as he was heading in the opposite direction. Never saw him again.
