It is well established through historical accounts and archaeological findings that Vikings set up initial colonies on the shores of North America just before 1000 A. But what is not known for certain is how a family of Icelanders came to have a genetic makeup which includes a surprising marker dating to 1000 A. The study, led by de CODE Genetics, a world-leading genome research lab in Iceland, discovered a unique gene that was present in only four distinct family lines.The DNA lineage, which was named C1e, is mitochondrial, meaning that the genes were introduced by and passed down through a female.As of today, there are 80 Icelanders who have the distinct gene passed down by this woman.MORE Nevertheless, there is another explanation for the presence of the C1e in these 80 Icelanders.It is possible that the Native American genes appeared in Iceland after the discovery of the New World by Columbus.It has been suggested that a Native American woman might have been brought back to mainland Europe by European explorers, who then found her way to Iceland.

Sailing employs the wind—acting on sails, wingsails or kites—to propel a craft on the surface of the water (sailing ship, sailboat, windsurfer, or kitesurfer), on ice (iceboat) or on land (land yacht) over a chosen course, which is often part of a larger plan of navigation.

A course defined with respect to the true wind direction is called a point of sail.

Based on the evidence of the DNA, it has been suggested that a Native American, (voluntarily or involuntarily) accompanied the Vikings when they returned back to Iceland.

The woman survived the voyage across the sea, and subsequently had children in her new home.
