Hey Richard,

No worries, the Draken Harald Hårfagre sea trial was a voyage to Liverpool and back to Norway, so the English are safe now.
Yeah they were big bad dudes and survivors of the raids often described them as giants.



Their sport today is racing. The Tall Ships Challenge is a 10-week endurance race and crosses all 5 of the Great Lakes.

Stay tuned.
Thanks,
Terry

Draken Harald Hårfagre in port this morning at Lerwick Shetland in the North Sea after a rigging issue developed.



A Local radio station there interviewed Cpt Björn Ahlander and he suggested it may have been done intentionally by a crew member who wanted to visit Shetland. He didn’t seem to be very concerned and said they were going to the bar to play and sing but also said they need to continue on their long journey.

They have repaired the Dragon's shroud and hoisted the mast back into place today.


Hope to see them underway again in the morning.

They say it was a rough night and after about 18 hours at sea Draken is nearing next port in the Faroe Islands.



Interesting in the track here is soon after they rounded the southern tip of Shetland I noticed then had turned back for a short distance but then soon were back on course. Looking forward to welcoming Draken and the crew to Chicago in July.
