CLYDE at the British Championships 2019

Donald Petrie

Clashes with the Scottish school examinations and the World Schools Championships meant that there was only a small CLYDE contingent at this year’s British Championships held in Yorkshire on the weekend on 4th to 6th May. The CLYDE highlight was a Bronze medal for Donald Petrie (M60) in the Individual Championships held on a very fast area at Arncliffe and Kilnsey North, while the Relay Championships held at Middleton Park saw the debut of CLYDE’s first ever W60 team. Full results can be found here.

CLYDE Successes at JK 2019

Donald and Amelia Petrie on JK Sprint Podium 2019

A small but dedicated group of CLYDE members made the long trip south to Farnborough and Newbury for the JK International Festival of Orienteering 2019 held over the Easter weekend. The standout performances on a weekend of tough racing in very hot and sunny conditions were by Donald Petrie, who won M60 on all three days and was awarded the trophy for the best performance by a male orienteer over the entire weekend, and Amelia Petrie, who took the silver medal in the W60 Sprint Race held at Aldershot Garrison. There was also success for CLYDE member Emma Wilson who was part of the Edinburgh University team which won the Women’s Trophy on the JK Relays held at Minley. Full results will eventually be here.

CLYDE at the Scottish Middle Distance Championships 2019

Several CLYDE members attended the inaugural Scottish Middle Distance Championships held at Birnam Hill on 30th March, but the standout performance was by Alice Wilson who was the first ever winner of the W18 title by over four minutes. Full results can be found here, with the full list of the champions can be found here. There was an even larger CLYDE turnout for the second event of this year’s Scottish orienteering League (SOL) series held at Dumyat the next day, and full results of this event can be found here.

CLYDE at the Tinto Twin

This weekend saw the 31st, and last, Tinto Twin races. A cold, clear night race followed by a day race (in a blizzard). CLYDE had class winners in Kirsten (W16), Alastair Dunlop (M45) and Dave Robertson (M55). Well done to all who took part, and many thanks to Tinto for running such a magnificent, idiosyncratic, annual series for so many years. Provisional Results and more to follow on the Tinto website.

CLYDE at the British Night Championships 2019

Mild weather and well planned courses which made the most of the technical and physical demands of Mill of Dinnet near Aboyne were key ingredients for a very enjoyable and successful British Night Orienteering Championships last weekend. The outstanding CLYDE result was undoubtedly Dave Robertson’s excellent win in M55, but there were also highly commendable podium places for CLYDE members Thomas Wilson (3rd in M21) and Emma Wilson (3rd in W20), both running for EUOC. Full results can be found here.

CLYDE Training at Gleniffer Braes

Many thanks for Dave and Ann Robertson (assisted by Alastair Dunlop) for organising the CLYDE training session at Gleniffer Braes last Saturday morning. The area has definitely improved in recent years, and the “in and out” exercise provided invaluable practice of entering low-visibility areas.
