Reykjavil (Island)
(April 21 to May 1, 2009 )

April 29, 2009 (time onboard = UTC )
Reykjavik, Iceland.
19h00 local time

Our stop over is rather windy. We did not put our program online because there is nothing realy set. Everything was influenced by local elections. Coming back to Reykjavik eleven months later the expedition was able to validate its circumnavigation of the North American continent.
The crew celebrates its event through a lecture at the University of Iceland. M. Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, president of Iceland had paid a visit on board to encourage such initiative aiming at raising awareness about climate change. We kept going during this week with the interviews to fulfill our field investigation with climatologist and economist.
