minus cold degrees

A 4 km gain on the pole while you sleep?! Yes, please.

Shame that the drifting ice most likely was the cause of the large ice rubble patch the team couldn't traverse today and had to do a long ski around, to the south. You win some, you loose some! 

The team crossed their first lead today (a large fracture within an expanse of sea ice) which was a pretty spectacular experience for them all.

Totally acclimatised now there where no mention of the weather until pressed when they agreed it was a bit windier today and a little warmer but no one had any idea what the temperature actually was.
