DAY 1 LONG STAGE PART 1 (Ron Schwebel)

 Wednesday, November 28, 2012
This will be a brief summary as we just got back to the ship at 10pm.

The team went really well today. Conditions were good to start, mostly nice solid icy snow. After 3 hours the sun warmed things up, the snow softened and it was very shifty.
We did a multilap course and finished our last lap after 13:26 hours.
We hope to be about top 15, so a good result and around 73km.

More tomorrow.
