Adventure orienteering VÄLE PÄTT
It is a selection orienteering event where you can choose which checkpoints (CP) to pick up. So you choose your own route distance and direction.
The word adventure refers to some special tasks which take place in some of the CP-s and that ad some excitement to the competition. The name’s first part VÄLE means fast and PÄTT is something you can move quickly with – a shoe (it is a word in dialects). It is also possible to participate by bicycle.

Competition center (HQ) is in the sports center of Muhu.
Participants: 2-4-member teams
Categories: men (HH), women (DD), mixed (HD), family (PERE, members from different generations and from the same family), bike (RATAS). It is also possible to participate alone. You will get the result, but it is not a separate category.
The teams get the maps before the start (and rental SI cards if you do not have your personal card). Every team member has to have one SI-card. SI card is an electronic device that registries your movement in CP-s. The CP-s on the track are marked with orienteering marks (orange and white) and you receive different amount of points from taking the CP-s. The points depend on the difficulty and distance form the HQ.
The maximum time is 4 hours. The team who gets the most points is the winner. Every minute over time (finishing after 16:00) gives minus 1 point. In the CP-s with extra tasks the instructions are either written or given verbally by an instructor.
