09 feb Hvide Sande Shipyard welcomes Dyrafjeld
The Norwegian training ship, Dyrafjeld, has arrived in Hvide Sande where she will undergo a renovation of damage from rot as well as maintenance of her engine. The renovation will last through the winter. Come spring, the ketch-rigged sloop will return to her natural habitat and head for southern Norway with her students aboard.
Dyrafjeld is a ketch rigged sloop built in 1889 and thus one of the world´s oldest sailing vessel still in service! The beautiful ship started in fish trading (herring) later transporting lime along the west coast of Norway. She has travelled all over the world including Australia as well as several transatlantic tours. Before being a training ship, she also acted as charter boat for tourists in the Canary Islands.
Dyrafjeld has beautiful, fast lines and she has been able to log an average speed of 10-11 knots over 36 hours traveling along the Norwegian west coast.
Dyrafjeld is owned by Undervisningsbygg KF under the municipality of Oslo.
