A handful of QOs headed down the road to Poundbury near Dorchester to take part in an urban event that was part of the UKUL (UK Urban League) and SEOUL (South England Orienteering Urban League) (and controlled by QO @RichardS).
Poundbury is built on Duchy of Cornwall land, according to principles of architecture and urban planning as advocated by HRH The Prince of Wales in his book ‘A Vision of Britain’. As Richard describes:
the outcome is a nearly perfect venue for orienteering. Its maze of streets and alleyways almost devoid of people and traffic is weirdly brilliant.
In Men’s Vets, Phil Sorrell came in 7th - just in the chasing pack a few minutes behind the two fast leaders. In Men’s Super Vets, Andy Rimes came in 8th and Steve Robertson, running up, in 16th.
In Men’s Ultra Vets, Tony Hext came in 20th, and in Women’s Ultra Vets Rosie had a great result finishing in 3rd place, just over a minute behind the winner.
