Ultimate Arctic Crossing - part 2
Tuesday March 17 - DAY 21 / Traction sails or powerkites are currently the ideal tool for all major polar treks - Arctic and Antarctic alike. Borge Ousland, Eric Philips, Jon Muir and the others were all equipped with them in this spring 2002 season. Dixie and Alain were carrying three sizes of sails in their sledges: 8m², 21m² and 32m². At the time of their Transantarctic, the sizes of the sails were a little different: 6m², 12m² and 21m².
