The Sea Stallion at sea

The Sea Stallion, a reconstruction of a thousand years old viking longship, has departed Dublin on a 1400 nautical miles journey back to Denmark. They expect to arrive on August 9th.

The ship is a replica of a 30m longship, build in Dublin around 1040 by Nordic or Nordic taught shipbuilders, and some time later sunk near Roskilde in Denmark, to block a narrow passage in the fjord for enemy ships. The wreck was, along four other viking ships, raised in the 1960s and is now on permanent exhibit at the Roskilde Viking Ship museum.
