Swansea Bay weekend
Six QO examined their credentials on dunes and burrows, amongst the most technical of orienteering environments, on the Gower and Vale of Glamorgan coast.
Tucked away near Port Talbot steel mill, the intriguing Kenfig was the star attraction. After years of trying, permissions were only granted for its use as an orienteering area as recently as 2016. It featured twice at the Croeso 2016 multidayer.
Andy Rimes made up for a mispunch on day 1 at Oxwich by taking an impressive 90 minutes for the Brown course at Kenfig. Karen Lewis was 25th of 32 on Green, a really good result with Karen perhaps gaining an advantage because of the technicality of the area. Annabelle Lewis was runner up on the Orange course.
Anyone in any doubt as to how tricky the terrain used by organising club Swansea Bay OC was need only look at the results of three of our top orienteers, Andy, Rosie and Bill. Between them they completed only two of the five runs they started!
