Expedition update 26.05.2008

SMS From Francesco 20.48 GMT

We paddled with head winds for about 30km. We reached the Sound of Arsaig, position N56^46.116' - W06^00.065'. A very nice place but full of Midges.

Siamo avanzati controvento per circa 30 km. Ora siamo nel Sound of Arsaig, posizione N56^46.116' - W06^00.065'. Bel posto infestato dai midges.
