Iltarastit, Stensböle

They have been running the "evening" orienteering events on Sunday midday for a while now, since it is quite dark after 17-18 or so. This is the last event for Iltarastit, but there are a few other clubs organizing these for a couple of weeks still this season.

Nothing too dramatic on #1, #2, and #3. Then a lot of deep "canyons" and other steep places around #4 which caused some confusion - probably cost me about 5 minutes here. No problems at #5 but a bit of searching for #6 (not too much lost here, max 1 minute). Then I chose to run not straight, but along paths and roads to #7 - we shall see if that paid off when all the results are up on the web. Again a longer route along a path to #8. From #10 it would probably have been slightly faster to run in-between the houses to the road more directly. Nothing special at #11 and #12. Then #13 was drawn close to a fence, but I didn't really know on which side of the fence the control was - luckily there were others running to/from the control so I just followed them.

This took me about 57 minutes. If I could have avoided the big mistake at #4 and some smaller mistakes the time approaches 50minutes, which is OKish for amateur/fitness orienteering on a 5km course (for me anyway!).

  1. Ciao Jens, I have not had motivation or time for IOM sailing lately. The plan two-three years ago was to build a few PIKANTO boats for myself and others - but that didn't happen either (I blame studies and work),
    so I don't have a boat at the moment.

    Building a cnc-mill, a cnc-lathe, and another telescope and/or a telescope-mount for astrophotography are now on the to-do list...


  2. yoo'l be back. And we miss you. And your nice (IOM) site. Good luck with your new targets at the present... Jens
