Surf Coast Event Report

Point Lonsdale

Blessed with another adverse weather event, 53 keen competitors assembled in the lee of the sand dunes at Ganes Reserve, Point Lonsdale. Our course setter Andrew Turner announced that due to a gas leak at the Lighthouse police had blocked access to the area including controls 9, 13, 20.
Many opted to collect the controls at the south of the map first and crested the dunes to be welcomed by a south-westerly squall and driving rain for the beach run.

Keeping maps intact was a major challenge and many finished holding fragments of disintegrated map and soggy control cards despite using plastic bags. Those using their mobile phones for control logging with the MyOMaps/MapRun apps also had the same challenge to keep their devices dry.

Next event is at Barwon Heads on 20th January.  Don’t miss it!.
