Orienteering race 1:35:23 [4] 12.8 km (7:27 / km)

Susquehanna Stumble XVII - on a much nicer day than it looked when I got up and saw the rain outside, a victory, just, in a sprint finish with Sam Kolins after going back and forth within not much more than spitting distance of each other for much of the course, later upgraded to a much larger margin of victory when it emerged that Sam, having got ahead of me on the last window control when I succumbed to my besetting sin of the day, letting gravity seduce me into dropping lower than intended during legs of more or less contouring across the hillside, had mentally transposed himself from that control to the similar second last control, which he therefore skipped whilst trying to navigate directly to the go control from there (with understandable confusion over how he could be so low on the hillside compared to where he should have been if he'd been correct regarding where he started from). My second Stumble win, which the annually updated pamphlet leads me to believe means I've now been inducted into the Stumble Hall of Fame, tied with Ken at 2 wins.

Pretty good turnout from QOC, though somewhat better was imaginable given the absence of some usual suspects due to holiday commitments and other factors. I liked the map just fine - rather hope SVO uses is for the 2016 Mid-Atlantics.

Time is a little bit uncertain - race definitely didn't start quite at 11am but the results software appears not to have been updated with the actual start time for any results that were available at the meet and I didn't time myself.
