A good step forward, on the way to the cap !

Day 3
Distance today : 16,3 km
Total distance : 23,7 km
N61.179, W046.878, alt 825
9 hours of travelling

As we woke up, we finally cought some wind, as planned by our weatherman, Marc. But it was slightly stronger than planned. We tried our Beringer 8, but had to move on to the Speed 10. What a hard work sking against the wind, dragging our 2 super heavy sleds.
At 3pm we only had gained 300m elevation, and travelled 7 km northwards (a lot more in fact).
Later in the afternoon the wind turned a few degres east, which made our progression a bit easier.
We put up our camp at 7:30 pm.
