two days of rest and now onward

After 24 hours camping out in a hut waiting for the weather to turn, Olly and George made it to Husavick where they have enjoyed two nights of R&R.

The boat needed some repairs on the skeg having had some close run-ins with some rocks while carrying out tricky landings – controlling a 200kg kayak is pretty hard!

Reports from Olly and George say that life in the kayak is pretty uncomfortable. There is hardly any room and it isn’t very stable. The over night sessions are not too much fun so anticipation is growing for ‘The Devils Dance floor’ crossing from Iceland to the Faroe islands where they will need to spend 6 nights at sea.

They are continuing to make progress. Tonight they will redeem their nocturnal habits and continue on to the North Eastern corner of Iceland before a nasty weather front comes in on Thursday.

They wanted to thank you all for your kind messages of support on social media, it is hard for them to answer while on expedition, but they can occasionally read them. There is a lot of sea in front of them so please continue to follow their epic efforts.

Olly and George have an awesome film crew following their expedition, as much as the terrain of Iceland allows, in order to share this adventure with the world.
