So, that was a rather rough night! 30m/s + winds, felt like we were sitting inside a laundry dryer… Luckily the snow wall gave good shelter, and everything was ok with the tent. (yes, we did go out in the middle of the night to check the ropes and all:)
In the morning the winds calmed down a little, and we managed to pack the things and cover some 12 kms south east during the day. We have camped, and we are given details on the weather situation from our mentor Lars Ebbesen. It seems that we need to push towards east using every calm hour of the day, as the winds will increase again. We hope to use the ski sail when the winds are in the right direction to gain some badly needed distance:)
