Viking Ship Cruise

Viking Longship on the water
Saturday, September 24
12:00 p.m.
Avenue, MD

On Saturday, September 24, our Lodge is invited for a voyage on The Longship Company’s 39 foot replica Viking boat Sae Hrafn (Sea Raven). We will depart at noon from a private dock in Avenue, MD. The trip will last around four hours depending on weather and wind, with a short shore break in the middle. RSVPs are required — see contact info below.

As a crew member you will help row the Sea Hrafn but no experience is needed. The rowing is not strenuous and we’ll will get a brief dock-side lesson. Two years ago members of the Longship Company kept us on course despite the SON members’ talent deficit. If the winds are favorable the large square sail will be hoisted; a towboat will accompany us at all times.

Avenue, Maryland is in southern Maryland, about an hour and 40 minutes from Norway House. Bring along lunch, snacks and plenty of water. Space is limited. All are welcome, with priority for Lodge members.

For more information and to RSVP call Henry Hansen at 703-815-4945 or 703-618-3191 or email him at
