Event Report – The Strand

This week we journeyed to The Strand in Williamstown. It was a beautiful evening with no wind and warm enough that you didn’t need a track top for the post event chat. The tranquil view from registration next to the Sea Scouts hall, was across the water to the city with moored yachts in the foreground and docks with large container ships unloading, further out.

Simin and David had their introduction to course setting on a map which offers a variety of conditions, with narrow streets in the northern section, and wide tree lined streets south of Ferguson street. We were not required to cross Melbourne Road to the west, which reduced the possible traffic problems. The choices to be made were, when do I move into the centre of the map to get some of those high pointers after either heading north up the east side, or south and up the west side.

When I arrived at control No. 12, near the entrance to the Ferguson Street pier, there was Jenny photographing an egret paddle in the shallows. We  moved a bit further along to find a night heron also paddling within camera reach. Incidents like this added to an enjoyable evening.

Thank you Simin and David for a good course.

Results:

A course: The top three got all controls; that was Fredrik, Ted, and Stephen Ci. Many of the others got all the high pointers. Overall, the top two are equal on points, and when Jeremy gets some more results on the board, he will be in contention for top spot. Alex leads Div. 2 from Don and Stuart.

B course: Marcus ran well for 2nd place with Kate and Julie coming in a minute late for 3rd and 4th. It’s going to be very interesting for the minor placing overall with six on an average of 96 to 98.

C course: Rob had a comprehensive win from Judie and Phillip. Sylvia could have had a better result, but got back 9 minutes late. The trio of John G, heather, and Helen had an enjoyable trip around the course.

Power walkers course: Maria and Jo again topped the class, and Deborah and Angela are now putting in consistent performances to move up the ladder. Lana and Jann got plenty of the high pointers, and we welcomed Ally and Les.

Next week it is north to Strathmore. Remember to park in Lloyd or York streets as there is restricted parking in Napier street.
