On Ice



25 km  

2950 m above sea level



-90.0000 / 0.0000

Tuesday Morning: Good news last night. The wind came and in pure joy they sailed 25km in a few hours. Then the wind died and they fought lines, kites and frustration for another 6 km. But! 31 km and the South pole station gone from the horizon is great. Now we hope the wind will stay with them for some days so that they can get past the 88 parallel where the plateau slopes down and wind is (supposed) to be better for sailing. It was a very happy bunch that says hello. They really got the taste of the thrill of dancing with the wind. As soon as the wind picks up they will be out of the sleeping bags and on their way!
