Types of courses

TEO offers a range of courses at each event. The courses are based on their navigational difficulty and distance. They also define club gradings that will be assigned after you have competed in a number of solo events. If you're unsure about which course is best suited for you, just ask at the regisitration table at the next event and someone will be happy to discuss the options with you. You will see that the entry forms are colour coded for each course using the colour scheme shown here.
