Kayak to Faroes - 50 nautical miles to go

I've not heard from Mick and Patrick, but I have heard from Murdo
Campbell, cox of the Stormoway RNLI lifeboat.

Based on their Spot transmitter, he plots their position as 45-50
nautical miles off Sumba, as of 11am.

That's still a heck of a way to go, especially at their most tired and
as the tide becomes most difficult. However, the weather forecasts
look in their favour.

They expected the 300km trip to take 3 days from North Rona. So being
2/3 of the way after two days, with no following sea to help, is
pretty much on track.
