8 AM

canoe paddle 5:36:00 [3] 41.0 km (7.3 kph)

Wilderness Traverse with Nathalie, James and RVG.

Despite all our efforts to get good boats I still managed to pick a fiberglass 17'. By the time I realized the mistake it was too late to chose a Kevlar version.
We had a solid start and made it into the lead pack of boats heading up to the Magnetawan River. What an awesome place for a race. At the route choice intersection we chose the southern route. Turns out it didn't make much a difference as we ended up paddling into the TA with the same boats we were with prior to the split.
2 PM

Mtn Bike 1:37:00 [3] 25.0 km (15.5 kph)

A quick change of shoes and we were off on our bikes, first on trails then finally onto roads where we pace lined to the next TA arriving as the third team in.
4 PM

Trek 8:17:00 [3] 28.0 km (17:45 / km)
shoes: Brooks Cascadias 11

Another fast transition and we were off onto the long trek. Our plan was to hit a small lake and then follow its shore south where we would set off on a different bearing to the river. Unfortunately we ran into an unmapped pond and got pulled to the east. When we saw the RR tracks we knew we were off a bit and adjusted our bearing to the SW. We hit our intended lake and then headed south from there with 2 additional swims but the damage was done and we had dropped 1.5 hrs behind the leaders by cp 5. We hit cp6 easily then set off for the coast at dusk and coasteered to cp7 without too much trouble. cp8 would be quite a challenge to navigate to with the featureless terrain and I was very happy when we saw the lights on the sw shore of the lake.
