Live your heritage!

(Or just come along)

On September 20 the Sons of Norway Lodge # 428 along with The Longship Company will sponsor a voyage on their 39-foot replica Viking boat Sae Hrafn (Sea Raven).  This is an excellent way to get out on the water and observe the local fauna and flora as well as getting the feeling of how our Viking ancestors operated their versatile sea craft.

We will depart a private dock in Avenue, Maryland, at around 11:00 a.m. for a voyage that will be approximately 3 hours long depending on the weather and winds. 

Avenue is in Saint Mary's County in Southern Maryland, approximately a 1 hour and 45 minute drive from the Fairfax City area.   

Some minor physical abilities will be needed such as movement within the boat and stepping into it. See www.longshipco.org for further information and to review the “Ship’s Manual”. For more details about what the trip will be like, check out the November 2012 Capital Viking (pdf) for an article describing a previous voyage.

Bring along lunch, snacks and of course plenty of water.
