Sailing in Roskilde Fjord

On Thursday, June 23, students from MAP had the opportunity to sail a traditional boat at the Viking Ship Museum, in Roskilde. We sailed out on the fjord on a small ‘Oselver tolværing’ from Os in Norway, named Bjørnefjord, built in 1998. Such boats are built in the traditional clinker construction method, with many features that tie it back to the technology used in the Viking Age, if not earlier. A great way to start summer!
