    Showing his versatility, David Jolly tried the amateur radio direction finding version of orienteering and came back with the win. Results and splits here.

    Competitors have to navigate to a series of unmapped orienteering controls using radio direction finding equipment, not confusing their current target with the others that transmit in turn on the same frequency. David competed in the 80m class (which is not the distance or climb but the wavelength of the 3.5MHz radio sugnal) and finished in 52.45 minutes over six minutes ahead of the next competitor. Good for a first attempt.
