Celtic Tiderace 2

Just a quick note on a british kayak expedition, a major crossing from northern scotland to the Faroes - check it out here. On this second attempt at the crossing, their progress can be viewed live with Spot Messenger tracking!
Best wishes to Patrick Winterton and Mick Berwick on this major adventure.

UPDATE (2009-07-08) Patrick and Mick made it! Congratulations!

Check a movie of the landing and an interview with them on Simon Willis' blog.

Watching their landing in Vagur is fantastic, it really brings back memories - we used the exact same landing spot, in similar conditions (small swell rolling in) - only less crowded :-)

The coastline around Vagur, on the west coast of Suduroy, is simply awesome. I can only imagine how they must have felt on their arrival - after all, Jesper and I only paddled from Stora Dimun, 48 km, on a day with rather calm weather, and for us, that was a great experience in itself.
