Ultimate Arctic Crossing - part 2
Monday March 18 - DAY 22 / Our two adventurers move up a gear. Benefiting from a flatter terrain but one that was nevertheless fissured with dangerous little rivers of ice-free water, Alain and Dixie fitted the fine-weather sails - the 21m², the ones that they controlled the best. Thanks to a south wind of 10 to 15kph, they slid over the pack ice for 4½ hours. Assessment: a dozen kilometres in the bag.
