Narrative
Leg 3 - Loss of Endurance. The ship is crushed by the ice and eventually sinks. The crew salvage as much they can carry and spend the next 5 months camping on the ice and making slow progress NW. In three lifeboats they eventually reach Elephant Island.

Commentary
From our modern perspectives, unless you’ve experienced conditions in the Antarctice, even as a tourist on board a relatively comfortable cruise ship, it is difficult to imagine what it could have been like for the Shackleton Expedition to find themselves ice-bound and having to row in these icy waters to have any hope of survival. From our armchairs, rowing and sailing our longship can, however, give us a sense of just how difficult making headway must have been. Even for those SOLers using routing software this wasn’t the easiest of races, so mindful of the challenges faced by the original expedition noted here we should congratulation our podium three for their success. Arriving within 10 minutes of each other, but 20 minutes ahead of the chasing pack, was well done indeed! Bravo, guys!
