Throughout the 27-day challenge, Peter, who lost a leg while serving in Afghanistan, and his 65 Degrees North team of three ex-servicemen and a doctor, were able to rely on Inmarsat satcoms for medical and emergency back-up, and to share the adventure in real time via media interviews and with supporters on social media.
