How to Orienteer

Watch more Wilderness Survival Skills videos:

Orienteering is a sport that uses a compass and map to navigate through a landscape. Polish your skills while having fun.

Step 1: Register
Register for the orienteering course. You will be given a map, a control description, and a control card. You will also be given the option of renting a compass if you have not brought your own.

Tip
The control description describes features such as the path, a junction in the path, or a large rock where each control, or destination, can be found.

Step 2: Use the map
Use the map to determine which direction you need to head to reach your first control. Turn the compass housing so that your direction aligns with the direction-of-travel arrow on the compass's housing.

Step 3: Hold the compass
Hold the compass level in your hand so that the needle can turn. Turn the compass so that the needle aligns with the grid lines on the housing.

Tip
Be sure the north end of the compass needle is pointing north. Otherwise you will head off in the opposite direction to which you intend.

Step 4: Proceed in the indicated direction
Proceed in the direction the travel arrow is pointing.

Step 5: Punch your control card
Use the punch to mark your control card when you reach your destination. This will prove you have visited the control. Visit all controls before the other orienteer and win the game.

Did You Know?
Orienteering began in Scandinavia in the 19th century.

Headcam Orienteering WCH Chasewater 07 Feb 2016

Blue Course 7.5 km 105 m climb

Water is a significant feature throughout this event, given that longer courses run around the lake and through some of the marsh areas.

A slowish start, with a minor error to #3, #5 was a major error. A fall on the way may have unsettled me (?excuse?)and I over ran and searched in a less dense area before reality struck.

Controls 7-11 seemed simply circuit runs but that's not to say error free - #10 was almost an overshoot.

#14 was a wobble, where I may have lost concentration racing another competitor, who may not have even been on my course!

#20 was a minor error where I followed my route in to the control rather than cutting out SE.

I left the run late-ish to take advantage of the forecast sunshine and was lucky to have the sun.

Some wet feet today!
