Exreme Steps' Report on Leg 2 of Polar Race 2003

Mike Krimholtz and Steve East of the Extreme Steps Team picked up the pace for Leg 2 walking rather than skiing. They travelled over rough ice and through some of the worst weather the Arctic could throw at them.

On Saturday they endured a white-out with wind gusting at 60mph, wind chill reached -47°C and visibility dropped to 20 yards. It is testament to their newly acquired skills, ability and confidence that they continued and covered around 15 nautical miles when only a week earlier in similar conditions they stayed in their tent and didn't move.

They pushed on with an overnight march and completed the 120 miles in less than 6 days.
