Pushing hard before the weather turns

In the last two days, Olly and George have made huge progress and they are about to get back into the kayak and push on with another long paddle. The weather is turning on Thursday and from current forecasts it looks like they will be out of the water for two days. Knowing that they have 48 hours of forced rest ahead of them they are working to make as much ground as possible.

The leg they are about to tackle is around the headland in the north east of Iceland. As the crow flies it is 13 miles to their next destination, the town of Bakkafjordur but around the coast it is 34 miles! They did consider carrying the kayak across land but at 200kg fully loaded, that didn't sound like fun!

 Paddling the boat is easier than carrying it!
