Weather: Wind Chill – 40.3C.
Missing Link have extended their lead to 33km ahead of QinetiQ. QinetiQ report they stopped early last night as they were exhausted, but they are now planning to continue into the night. Tess and Pete are safe and well and enjoying travelling with the support team.
Danske Bank have had a better day and are now 27km ahead of Team Due South who are in 4th place. Due South and South Pole Flag have made good ground. The weather has improved but we are all still hoping for sunny skies!
Amundsen’s team sat at the Pole on December 16th and took temperature readings every hour for 24 hours.
