Dry Swamp

Date: 2018-08-10

On friday I had the next orienteering competition.

The location was a little bit remote so the organizers provided a shuttle service from the railway station in Sigulda to the campsite.

Most of the checkpoints were placed on spots in the swamp. And like in the rest of Europe it had not rained there recently. So the swamp was pretty dried out. So it was like orienteering in a forest with a lot of undergrowth and few significant terrain structures. So good compass work was your friend – well it is not my friend as I must confess. And the second checkpoint already was some kind of catastrophe to me. And it continued that way. So had a bad race. And was finally happy to finish the race in time.
