2011 LOGOWednesday: They are now less than 1000km from the edge of Antarctica. The last two days became an on / off marathon as they tried to utilise the wind. This gave another 88,3km North, but all in all they recon they sailed some 150km as they searched for good wind angles.

They had to admit that had they been more experienced, they would have gotten further. But all in all, a good start. Now it seems they will have another slow day with hardly no wind. This may mean a forced rest day.
