Swan bound for Norway...
Sail trainees from Shetland left Lerwick Harbour onboard Swan early this morning and are making good headway towards the Norwegian coast. Swan is travelling to join a twenty-four strong fleet of similar vessels carrying over 300 crew members to take part in Nordisk Sjelads. Host port locations include Stavern, Skarhamn and Aalborg.
We wish all trainees and crew happy sailing!
