Race the Castles

Spot the castle! Knaresborough

Yorkshire

Three QO, Martin Lewis plus Pete and Jacob Shirvington enjoyed a grand tour of Yorkshire in mid August. A bit of poetic licence is being applied to the series name by the organisers though on Wednesday evening there actually was a race round a castle!

Slovenian 5 days

Stonah, Day 4 of Slovenia, 2019

Andy Rimes and Rosie Wych coped well with some highly technical orienteering in the Julian Alps of Slovenia at the end of July. An abundance of contour and rock features and general absence of paths or other line features made for a tough challenge.
