Classification system: Each check point is marked on the map and in control descriptions together with its value varying from 30 to 90 points – the value of each control is equal to its first digit times 10. The number and order of control points is up to discretion of each team (go-as-you-please). Passing of each control point has to be marked by inserting the SI card into the SI unit. Each control point is marked by a white-orange lampion (control kite) of size 30x30 cm, SI unit and punches (just in case of the SI unit failure). The final ranking of each team depends on the sum of the points gained. In case of an equal point result, the faster time wins. Exceeding the given time limit results in penalization - each started minute equals to 20 points being taken away. If the time limit is exceeded by more than 30 minutes, the team will not be classified.
