This trip has been amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.
The trip on the Swan...has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life
This opportunity has been a complete eye opener for me and I can only hope to do something like this again
It’s hard to think that 12 days ago we didn’t know each other at all but now were like a family sharing laughs and mischief
We have so many memories to share; the magic of the Mareel, the plunging waves and gales leaving us with salt swept hair
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!
