Photographer's Note

There is an annual Waterfront Festival in Toronto in July. One of the best feature of it is the 'Parade of Sails', when several visiting big sailboats sail around in the Toronto harbour. This year there was two featured boats in the parade of about 10 ships, the one shown here was one of them. I will post pictures of the other one tomorrow. There are two more views of this ship in the Workshop.
The ship is described on the Web page of the festival as follows (www.towaterfrontfest.com/tall-ships/draken/):
Draken Harald Hårfagre
The Most Authentic Viking Ship Built in 1000 Years!
Built by Norway’s leading experts and craftsmen in traditional boat building, the Draken is the largest reconstruction of a Viking ship built in modern times.
Starting in their homeport of Haugesund, Norway, she set sail on the 26th of April on a challenging expedition across the North Atlantic Ocean, the same route the Vikings travelled more than 1,000 years ago. ‘Expedition America’ will explore and relive one of the most mythological sea voyages – the first transatlantic journeys.
The Draken is so unique, in that it has no below decks and the only cooking facilities is an open galley. The 33 crew members sleep in a tent on the main deck that can shelter 22 sailors at a time. The crew sleeps in 3 watches with 4 hours work and 8 hours rest. The tent is the only shelter there is onboard!
