That's awesome!

Great adventures in modern times. You are lucky to have been able to join in the fun. I like the fact that modern vikings have included what looked like a female crew member in your photos. It's about time! My daughters enjoyed the photos also.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

hey! i am pretty sure that the dragon was carved by my friend Indrek!

Yes I believe so, Indrek was also part of the crew on the big ship.

The big one (11.6 m long, 12 oar power) had its maiden sea voyage.

It was built inland and had only sailed on a lake before.

Wait! Wasn't that one Viking wearing speedos? :blink:

That cannot be historically correct.... or at least I hope not, imagine a howling berserker charging in bear-skins and speedos.... frightening I tell you!

 

Looks like loads of fun.

Wow! Need more of that action here in the states.

Vikings had guts that is for certain! Even without taking battle into consideration...

Hard to imagine crossing any sea in a craft hardly 12 paces from bow to stern, even in good weather!

Thanks for sharing!
