10 reasons to come to WMOC2016

IMG_4412

I know that you’re worrying if WMOC 2016 is organised well enough, if the prices are affordable, if it’s even worth visiting this small country called Estonia etc. But we are sure that WMOC2016 will be the best WMOC ever organised, prices are really affordable and even Lonely Planet says that Estonia is the best value destination in 2016. 

If you’re still not convinced enough to register right now then here are only some of the reasons why you should definitely come to WMOC2016:

  • Good transportation systems by organizers to competition centres
  • Affordable price level (compared to Scandinavian countries.). For example a night in a hostel for 14 € is pretty good deal, isn’t it?! 
  • Everybody understands and speaks English (and Russian and Finnish and some other languages.. ) 
  • Free wifi almost everywhere (definitely in every event centre)
  • Short start intervals (starts last only 3 hours, plenty of time to see Estonia)
  • Many well organized services by WMOC staff: culture and leisure program, trustable child care, massage opportunities etc.
  • Discounted offers for transportation (ferry from SWE and FIN) and accommodation provided by organisers.
  • Green thinking during the competition (sorting waste, caring about nature etc)
  • Perfect for family vacation: many things to see and do in Estonia. Orienteering opportunities for all ages (public race is Tallinn Orienteering Week)
  • World Masters Orienteering Championships 2016 is going to be the coolest sporting event in Europe in 2016! 🙂

Brazilian team
12.August.2016

The Brazilian team is satisfied with the organizing of the 2016 WMOC and enjoyed the run in the marsh.

Six brazilian orienteers are participating in WMOC and TOW. Brazilian team leader Roberto Dias Torres (M65)  told that the Estonian terrain is very different from the Brazilian terrain. He had big difficulties understanding  the microrelief. In Brazil there are only big mountains with good visibility. Dias Torres was confused that in Estonia you can stand beside the control but not to see it. He was surprised by the Estonian marshes and enjoyed running in marshes very much. Brazilian marshes are deep and  impossible to run.

Orienteering is not that popular in Brazil. There are about 150 clubs and around 5000 orienteers, with all the  concentrated to the southern part of the country. He hopes that  the change in the orienteering federation management will bring changes in Brazil orienteering and after 5 years  the number of orienteers will be double and orienteering will also be developed in other regions of Brazil .

WMOC 2016 organizers work in the courses, information, transport, services etc.  got the highest score from the  Brazilian team.
