Perfect Calm from eastern side of Lake

A beautiful, cool but calm day inspired many competitors to snap a photo before they set off on their courses. Most competitors who took on the challenging terrain did well which was a credit to excellent course planning by Ian Grivell.  Don’t forget to vote in the Course Planners’ Awards which can be found on the Results page together with full results for this event.
