På søndag kl. 10.00 stævner hele Danmarks vikingeskib, The Sea Stallion from Glendalough, atter ud i de danske farvande med Dronning Margrethe om bord på den første del af rejsen.

Kursen bliver sat mod gammelt dansk land i Slesvig, Hedeby, hvor Havhingsten skal deltage i et råsejlstræf. Besætningen er på 60 til 70 mand med Vibeke Bischoff, som skipper.

    1. Hi Alen. I fully understand your interest.

      Denmark’s Queen Margrethe has also lost her soul to the ship. In her younger days she stood upside down in various of muddy archaeological excavations, and the enthusiasm has certainly never left her.

      When The Sea Stallion from Glendalough has left Hedeby in Schleswig it returns to Denmark. The 24 – 25th July it submits to the quay in Langør on Samsø because the island has some unique historical ties to the Viking Age

      Samsø is an unique Danish island. I have walked and sailed here, and there are always new discoveries to make.
      On a holiday, we came into conversation with some colourful archaeologists and we became aware of The Kanhave Channel, which is dated to the year 726

      The Kanhave Channel can be interpreted as a military facility for an established Viking fleet in Stavns Fjord. Stavns Fjord is an excellent natural harbour and via The Kanhave Channel the fleet could quickly attack or flee to the western Kattegat. Samsø had a very strategic location for the central power to control the ships in the inner Danish waters.

      PS I enjoyed the absolutely great and stunning pictures from your SONNY HIKE at Carn á Mhaim
