The Orcadian did a story on the team:
After arriving in Orkney last month, the team of four Icelandic rowers have embarked on the next stage of their journey this morning, Saturday.
The Auður is crewed by four Icelanders whose goal is to row unsupported from Norway to Iceland, via Orkney and the Faroe Islands, this year.
They left Norway on June 10, arriving in Kirkwall seven days later after an arduous crossing. Today, after waiting for favourable weather conditions, the team set off for Faroe.
On leaving, they said that they had been made very welcome in Orkney, and had very much enjoyed their stay in the islands.
Next year they then plan to continue on to Greenland and Canada.
