Viking Cruise 2014

This year I have the opportunity to take part in the longest cruise that I have undertaken in Moksha. The suggestion has come from Jim Hopwood, ex chairman of the Drascombe Association and owner of "Hippo" a converted Drascombe Gig.(see photo below)

The plan is to sail the 300 miles from Roskilde in Denmark, along the western coast of Sweden to Oslo in Norway. This journey will be undertaken in 20 mile stages taking approximately 3-4 weeks.

At the moment we have a fleet of 5 boats including 2 gig's, Drifter and 2 Coasters. There are a number of other interested persons and the fleet may increase further. The planning has now begun.
