1st June and they have reached kilometre 1252. For the first time, they are able to catch the odd glimpse of a patch of blue sea.

The most interesting piece of information this week was the weather: the two men encountered wind gusts of up to 100 km/h! They were hoping to have a period of favourable weather and the winds did die down for a short while. But it only lasted for a day before the wind gods were blowing again for all their worth!

What's more is that, for the past week, the surface of the ice has been poor and has prevented them from skiing during the night.
