Wednesday morning: another mix-day. In whit-out and variable low viability, they started out walking but were able to use the ski sails later on. After a short day and 40,3km they opted to call it a day. In camp it looked like the sun was beginning to break through, and that was first sign that the predicted wind for the following day may be right.

So, they rest and gather strength for what will hopefully be a long day tomorrow, Wednesday. If they are to reach their hoped for target of reaching Hercules inlet on Friday, they need wind. This means this is very much a home stretch. 260km left. They camped at S 82.3086  w 79.5887
