Voila, encore une bonne journée !
Dixie started his daily report with the exclamation that he and Seb enjoyed another good day yesterday. They gained an impressive 123 kilometres under a myriad of conditions that forced them to change kite sizes three times.
The temperatures yesterday afternoon were much kinder at around -18°C in the afternoon and the snow surface is increasingly softer as they progress north. They have passed the latitude of Nuuk, a significant point along their trajectory.
Last night they established their camp at an altitude of 2.224 metres at the following position :
N 65° 06' 48"
W 47° 07' 46"
That location is where they will remain today due to some inclement weather in the area. Dixie reported wind gusts between 30 - 40 knots this morning and no visibility, conditions that prohibit any safe movement outside of the tent. This storm, expected to be short-lived, allows Seb and Dixie to take a well-deserved rest day after their ambitious advancement over the past few days.
According to our weather forecast, tomorrow morning our duo should be able to recommence with their northbound journey.
