Open Ocean with the experienced paddlers. Our novice boat kept up with the lead veteran boats. Woo! (We got in trouble for not looping back, though) Happy with how we did in the open ocean Steering was a bit easier with slightly smaller waves.
Forgot to start the watch today. We switched up the steering and I helped steer from seat 5 as another teammate tried it for the first time. It's crazy when you realize how far you've come steering after just a few weeks going back to what it was like to be a first timer. We did some sprints and got video taken. I tried to paddle as much as possible when going by the camera rather than steering.

First LA Orienteering race. It was. 4-hour trail-o, so I was thinking it would be easy. Well, lots of trails that weren't on tre map and I was thinking that a "main" trail would be about the width of a paved bike path and a "minor" trail would be single track. Main trail was more like a dirt road and minor trail was still pretty wide. Anyway, lost maybe 30-40 minutes because I took a wrong trail up that want on the map and then couldn't figure out where I was. After that I recovered and enjoyed the views on the course. O-Ing in LA for the first time, look to my right and I see the Hollywood sign. This is all so crazy... Anyway, I pushed harder toward the end and ended up with first solo female. Happy with that! I was so tired that it took me 3 hours to even get an appetite after the race. Met some local orienteers and adventure racers too, so that's cool. Overall, a good day!
