Big Thanks to Sydney Fish Markets for allowing temporary berthing of ‘Aegir’ our 800AD replica Gokstadt Viking longship. We are able to continue the preparation towards ocean going trials. PHBC is looking for a more permanent situation to continue preparations. Thanks also to Colin Wishart and crew of FV Kingfisher of Deep Sea Charters for the vessel movement on the day.
Professor Simek at the helm of a Roskilde replica
Professor Rudolph Simek of the University of Bonn and editor-in-chief of Studia Medievalia Septentrionalia is a leading authority on Norse Culture and Viking longships.
His invaluable experience in all aspects of longship set up and sailing will be a huge asset to our project as we get the Jorgen Jorgenson back into full sailing and rowing trim.
