Each year the club has an Orienteer of the Year (OY) competition across all the grades and levels. The 2021 OY series is planned to be made up of 8 diverse events, with the top 5 scores counting towards total OY points. The OY rules and points calculations have been revised to reflect this change.
The OY events for 2021 are:

2021 OY points
We are currently building a new OY points calculator. As are there are now score events and a double sprint day, the calculations are more complex.
Once this is ready, the 2021 OY points will be available here.

OY points calculation overview
There are 12 OY grades in the OY competition:
|Red Long Female||Red Long Male|
|Red Medium Female||Red Medium Male|
|Red Short Female||Red Short Male|
|Orange Female||Orange Male|
|Yellow Female||Yellow Male|
|White Female||White Male|
- The first place runner in each grade gets 25 points.
- Other runners are awarded points based on their time behind the winner.
Calculated as 25 * (winning time/competitors time).
- Each competitors top 5 scores from the series of 8 events are added to get the series score.
- A minimum of 10 points is awarded where the calculation would result in a score of less than 10. A mis-punch also get 10 points.
- If you run an event in a different grade to your usual OY grade, you will also receive 10 points.
- Planners and controllers of OY events get 25 points for that event.
- See the OY rules document for the full rules and details of calculations used for the score event.
