Leg 1 complete: Greenland - Iceland

At 3pm GMT Olly and George landed on the coast of Iceland after 40 hours of paddling, completing leg 1 of this challenge. They had paddled 138 miles.

They saw whales and seemed on good spirits on the brief sat phone conversation. More details and photos to come when signal/wifi allows.

Now they will spend the next two weeks hopping across the North coast of Iceland, they are hoping to cover between 30 - 60 miles a day. There is a good window of weather so they are aiming to push hard while that lasts. If the weather turns then they will have to wait it out - this will allow them to rest but could get frustrating for them too as they are keen to keep moving.
