#1 - Poor direction down off the hill, didn't hold line and had to loop round under the control.
#2 - Poor compass again, pushed around by the veg but no real time loss
#3 - Ok, fastest split, might have been quicker closer to the red line though without climbing up through the rock.
#4 - Terrible, over 5 minutes lost on a 200m leg, too high and then just kept on going rather than correcting sooner.
#5 - Having traipsed the hillside on the direct line, decided to go down to the valley and up into the control, but it was slow going.
#6 - More poor compass towards the end of the leg.
#7 - 3 minutes binned, hit attackpoint of hills but wasn't certain it was them, got into circle but turned wrong way and was hunting around in the wrong place.
#8 - Slow, hesitant, over-reading detail.
#9 - Pretty bingo control, but poor compass again and despite aiming right to try and see knoll, ended up left - got into circle and turned wrong way.
#10 - Easy
#11 - Yet more poor direction, never hitting track, but fine (if hesitant) down into the control
#12 - Was expecting the crag to be facing the other way, but was ok.
#13/14 - Fine
#15 - Switched off, ended up on wrong side of fence not knowing what was going on.
