Most interesting news i found today
 
Crew to sail replica Viking ship across North Sea<dl class="inline"><dt>

Thats quite insane.

My prediction is half the crew will bail in 72 hours and they will probably have to turn back because of lack of crew. ... 7 weeks off the bat, without 'breaking in' in that thing is madness!

Especially since that "rescue boat" will be accompanying them the whole time. Seeing that "escape" boat will be tempting to all those Sea Sick/Cold/Shivering/Hypothermia/Soar/Pissed Off volunteer crew members on a mad 7 week cruise without shelter from wind and water.

Not my cup of tea, lol

An absolute tea party. They will have to row half the way, if July stays to its usual low wind habits. If they are planning the traditional raiding trips (to the local pubs) enroute they will be truely Irish by the time that they arrive.

Funny. The traditional Viking rescue boat was the back of a great whale, and/or the Rainbow Bridge to Valhalla.

Sorry for reviving this thread. But the Sea Stallion left Roskilde bound for Dublin a few hours ago. Follow their progress on: Havhingsten fra Glendalough: Forside
(That is, if any of you care about 65 crazy people in an older design :))

It will be interesting to see how they go. Good luck to them.

JomsViking,

Don't worry about it. We'll follow anything. Currently we're following some old guy and his grand-daughter, ..er, girlfriend, I mean, and they've managed to hit a ship in the stern, while at sea. Never, ever, overestimate our maturity or lack of interest in juvenile stunts.

Now, how many of these 65 are women and are they dresing the part? Sorta like Brigitte Nielsen in "Red Sonja", perhaps? (g)
