This summer, Olly Hicks and I will embark upon a journey that takes us from Greenland to Scotland in a sea kayak following in the Wake of the Finnmen.

We will cover 1,200 miles in 6 weeks, spending twelve nights out at sea paddling by the light of the midnight sun.

We are on a mission to try and uncover the mystery of how an Innuit community came to be on a remote Scottish Island. Could the Inuit have really kayaked all the way from Greenland?
