Category: Competition
Map/area: Aker Brygge
Organiser: Nydalens SK

Time: 19:10
First sprint competition since last year, horribly slow & rusty:

I started by forgetting my description holder, so I could not check description and control codes without unfolding my map, so naturally I mostly didn't and this lead to a MP on #5. :-(

I think the two main routes to #1 were nearly identical, to #2 I would have avoided the stairs by taking the slightly longer route around to the right, #3 was OK.

To #4 I missed the shortcut to the shorter path close to the first building. 5 s?

On #5 I misread the map thinking the exit from the canopy was closed, so I went down the stairs to the pebble beach below and this lead me to the MP on a control on the special detail about 30m west of my own: Probably 10-15 s slower route as well as the MP, so really stupid.

My next routes to 6-10 were all OK.

My worst route was to #11, I mistakenly ran back up the ramp west of #10, hit the purple area and was forced to go back east and run between the buildings. I should have passed 19 and the start triangle instead, or I could have reduced the time loss by crossing the eastmost bridge and passed by 17. I probably lost 15 s here.

No real route choices to 12, 13, 14, but to 15 I should have stayed on the west side of the final building, about 5 s.

Without a description sheet I didn't see that #16 was located south of the stairwell housing, another 5 s.

OK to 17, 18, 19 & 20.

I almost ran on the wrong side of the building to #21, I should have just followed the canal. 5-10 s.
