ACBS Blackhawk’s have been invited to display our classic boats at Navy Pier in July for the Tall Ships Chicago event.

Of particular interest is the Viking Ship ‘DRAKEN HARALD HÅRFAGRE’ that is sailing from Norway across the Atlantic onto the Great Lakes to attend the event in Chicago.

DRAKEN HARALD HÅRFAGRE is beginning the voyage on Saturday and is scheduled to be in Chicago for the event starting July 27th.

WOW!! :woohoo:

How cool is that! Are they putting out an open call for crew? I could be one of those guys below deck without a shirt ready to row. Although...they're probably not looking for fat old guys... :pinch:

Thank you for posting, Terry!

Hello Jack,
I heard Tahoe cancelled out hosting the International show and meeting. Now supposedly the Glacier Lakes Chapter based in Southern WI has stepped up and it will be held on Lake Michigan at Racine.

George,
The crew has been filled. And a hearty crew is must be as there is only stowage below decks. But hoping they will take old fat guys out for a cruise on the lake on a nice day.

Thanks,
Terry

Do they plan to engage in any of the traditional Viking sports ie. raiding a local monastery or have things been dulled down? I am English and I have a tall strong Danish friend and I always say I can see why my ancestors always lost.
