A Stormy Start
Published on 10.06.2009 - Kite Greenland 2009
The two Norwegians were dropped on the icecap by helicopter, unlike Adrian Hayes's expedition, which, for its part, had to devote three days to climbing along a glacier.
Rather discouraging for the two Norwegians, this expedition start: indeed, on Day 2 of their adventure, the wind was so strong that they couldn't even use their sails and were forced to wait until the storm had subsided. This immobility lasted three days - three days under canvas. They had informed their readers: "We won't be taking any pointless risks, we're here to have fun..."
08 June, is Day 4 of the expedition, they finally could raise the camp and use their traction sails. 9 June, they had put a total of 93.5 km on their adventure's clock.
