Sea Stallion from Glendalough 2007
Yesterday the Sea Stellion, a replica of one of the longest Viking Longships ever found, departed from Roskilde with 65 people and all their equipment on board for the great expedition for Dublin.
For one month and half, the ship will be the crews only home on the 1000 nautical miles long journey across the North Sea, into the Atlantic Ocean and south through the Irish Sea. The crew must fight through the toughest waters of Europe and some of the most challenging waters of the world north and west of Scotland. 900 Years ago the Vikings made this trip in the opposite direction. The epic story of the Vikings is ever fascinating: a bizarre mixture of fear and admiration.
