Viking Tall Ship

photographs by Ethel Mortenson and Thomas Davis

The tall ships came to Sturgeon Bay from Algoma on the way to Green Bay on August 3rd. One of the ships was the Draken Harald Hårfagre, the world’s largest Viking tall ship. The tall ships are going on to Duluth from Green Bay, but the Draken will not be with them because of charges by the U.S. government for sailing on the Great Lakes. Not enough funding was available to keep the Draken on the Great Lakes tour. This is a shame. There should be a solution. We’ll post more photos of the ships tomorrow. The ships came through the canal between Lake Michigan and the bay of Sturgeon Bay and then docked in Sturgeon Bay. The first photos were taken as the Draken came through the canal. The later ones are the Draken at dock.
