“Building a Viking Ship in Maine and Sailing in the Wake of Leif Ericsson”

March 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Maine’s First Ship Spring Lecture Series

In the first of the series, Shipwright Rob Stevens, talks about one of his favorite projects, “Building a Viking Ship in Maine and Sailing in the Wake of Leif Ericsson.” In 1996, Stevens and a crew of what he calls “joyful shipwrights” built a Viking knar at his boatyard on Hermit Island in Phippsburg. He and a group of men with varying levels of sailing knowledge sailed her from Greenland to Newfoundland to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of Leif Ericsson’s voyage to the New World. Stevens is Virginia’s shipwright and has been building and repairing wooden boats for over thirty years. He’s worked on ships as far afield as Los Angeles and Galveston, and as local as Bath.

Public welcome; suggested donation $5.
