Day 1, Saturday 23rd Nov, Ronne Ice Shelf: It was a very pleased Roland that reported in Sunday morning. The first day wend down well. The weather had been nearly too good with just 12°C, no wind and no clouds! But with fairly soft snow, the sledge was no rock ship…
He had really faired for this, but the sledge ‘came to him’ during the day and was manageable eve in soft snow. That was a relief.
The only problem was sweating a lot and running out of water!
The firs day was all about adjustments and finding a balance between length of stints and speed. But also getting the sledge to float well and it sinks into the snow.
