Event descriptionRogaining, with possibility of taking part in the modality of 3 or 6 hours, across the nature reserve of the Cap de Creus. Cartography by Marian Cotirta, Ionut Zinca and Andreea Zinca Aligots orienteering club, Cadaqués town council and Cap de Creus National Park are delighted to host this Rogaine race (6hours and 3 hours) in a very special terrain that was home to and inspired Salvador Dalí. Bordered by the historic fishing villages of Port de la Selva at its north-western edge and Cadaqués at its south-eastern edge, as well as being an extraordinary natural paradise it is a heaven for art and bohemia lovers.
Terrain descriptionHighly detailed cartography of vegetation and elements akin to standard orienteering mapping allowing for maximum penetration into the terrain. Some generalization to adapt to the 1:20,000 scale. Tracks and paths are to be found across the whole of the map, however in some areas this is limited to infrequent animal tracks. Other than the two towns of Port de la Selva and Cadaqués, each at one extreme of the map, edifications are limited to a few farm buildings, some of which are in ruins. A remarkable number of shepherd shelters are present, also many of which are in ruins. Dry stone walls where both sides of the wall are visible are represented on the map. Man-made stonewall ledges for agriculture are not represented. The Cap de Creus Rogaine map allows for diverse orienteering techniques. The use of specific orienteering mapping criteria in the cartography of vegetation allows for secure orienteering away from paths and tracks.
