Our East Anglian Champions for 2021Class winners from the EA Champs held in Epping Forest on 26th September

Sunday 26th September was an eventful day for some WAOC members - especially our Juniors. WAOC juniors who are members of the East Anglian Junior Squad, namely Hebe Darwin, Sophie Kerswell, and Alex Wetherill, were representing their Region in a combination of individual and team competitions at the Junior Inter-Regional Championships (JIRCS) up in the north-east of England, helping secure a very creditable 6th place overall for EAJS.

This date clashed with the East Anglian Championships 2021, held at HAVOC's event in Epping South West, where orienteers of all age classes were competing with their peers in the region to be the champion in their age class, or outright.

Congratulations to WAOC winners from the EA Champions 2021:

Alistair Fu (M14), Kate Jarrett (W12), and Alys Powell (W10);

Tom Beskeen (M35) who won the Mens Open category, Brian Cowe (M45), Dil Wetherill (M55), Mike Bickle (M70), and Chris Morley (M80);

Emma Jarret (W45), Helen Hague (W50), Sue Hartley (W65), and Hazel Bickle (W70).
