Dear Stationcat
There were problems in testing the Draken Harald Harfagre in Norway last year so the planned trip to Wirral for this year has been put back at least until next year. Instead 54 of Wirral's Viking Navy raided the Karmoy Viking Festival in June and got valuable practice in rowing the 35metre long vessel - we all had a fantastic time.
See this article by Geoff Barnes in the Globe:

and this one by Lorna Hughes in the Echo

There are also links to video clips on Granada TV etc. on www.nottingham.ac.uk/-sczsteve
So fingers crossed!
Steve
